Reminder: Antitrust Economics 101 Starts Tomorrow

Josh Wright —  12 May 2009

Tomorrow I’ll be starting a three week interactive web seminar on basic microeconomic concepts that form the basis of antitrust analysis.  The lectures will be available through Competition Policy International’s Learning Center on three consecutive Wednesdays at 12 pm EST: May 13, 20, and 27th.  CLE credit is available for practicing lawyers.  The courses will also be available “on demand” at the Learning Center after the live lecture.  The material will be useful for antitrust lawyers, law students interested in antitrust (or who might be doing antitrust this summer), and generally those interested in brushing up on some basic microeconomics.  I’m hoping that after this first installment, I might be able to add on new courses with more sophisticated concepts and applications as well as a more specialized focus on discrete topics, i.e. Antitrust Economics 202, 303, etc.

You can sign up here. This week’s lectures will focus on individual and market demand, as well as elasticity concepts and applications.
