European Business Law: Competing in Europe

Competition - Webinars
Date: Monday, 08 January 2018

Venue: MOOC

This six-week course titled Competing in Europe is the third in a series of three exploring some of the main business aspects of European Union law. Besides providing learners with a sound knowledge base of European laws and regulations, the series explores business considerations within a broader perspective by including inputs from leading law practitioners in the field. More specifically, the third course discusses how to compete on the internal market and protect your brand, product or invention. It includes legal disciplines such as Intellectual Property law (IP law), Competition law and specific branches within Public law, such as public procurement and state aid. At the end of this course, you will have a basic understanding of how to: • Find and understand relevant laws and regulations governing the internal European Union market • Protect and defend a company’s products, brands and inventions by obtaining and licensing trademarks and patents • Create a competitive edge for a company and apply the basic principles of EU competition law • Construct and present a persuasive legal argument About the Series The Lund series in European Business Law ranges from considering the basic structures and principles of the European Union to focusing on specialized areas of European Union law. The first course, Understanding the Fundamentals, examines the core structures and principles of the European Union. The second course, Doing Business in Europe, examines legal areas such as Company law, Labour law, Tax law, Environmental law and Private International law, and how they tie in to doing business in Europe. All three courses can be taken independently or in sequence depending on your needs and preferences.
