Summary _Antitrust Law_ is a practical casebook using (1) enforcement agency materials, (2) modern case law, and (3) hypothetical problems to train law students to counsel clients, lobby enforcement agencies, and argue to courts. It fully explores the Rule of Reason and per se doctrines as they are understood today, including remedial issues and the conduct necessary to establish a naked or an integrated antitrust agreement. It then addresses the increasingly important limits on antitrust relating to (1) standing and competitive injury; (2) free speech; (3) government regulation; and (4) labor relations. Finally, it examines how the courts apply antitrust law in the context of intellectual property and amateur and professional sports. United States antitrust law has a rich history and a tradition of stimulating in-depth economic analysis. These topics understandably dominate most casebooks. Unfortunately, a typical introductory antitrust class is not long enough to cover history and modern application. And typical law students -- like most judges and even enforcement agency lawyers -- do not have the background necessary to appreciate nuanced economic analysis. _Antitrust Law_ uses historical materials to illustrate on-going practical problems, and it explains economic concepts in plain language giving students just what they need to enter the practice as antitrust lawyers. -- From
