The Short Courses on Advanced EU Competition Law and on State Aid and Subsidies Regulation are two online 16-hour executive education programmes that are designed with the availability and needs of full-time professionals in mind. They delivered over four intensive 4-hour sessions, taking place on Friday afternoon.
Short Course on Advanced EU Competition Law
The Short Course on Advanced EU Competition Law is designed for civil servants, legal practitioners and in-house lawyers who already practice in the area of competition law and would benefit from an advanced understanding of the fundamentals and the most recent developments in the discipline. The Short Course covers agreements (including distribution agreements and intellectual property), abusive practices (with a special focus on digital markets) and merger control (with an overview of the ongoing review of the discipline).
Short Course on State Aid and Subsidies Regulation
The Short Course on State Aid and Subsidies Regulation covers the aspects of EU State aid law, the emerging UK subsidy control as well as the interaction between both in the context of the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement. It is aimed at civil servants, practitioners and in-house lawyers who want to gain an understanding of this growing area of the law, which demands specific expertise. The Short Course covers both the substantive and procedural aspects of the discipline, including the notions of selectivity and specificity (with a focus on the area of taxation) and enforcement by authorities and courts.
