Product description

Australian Competition Law provides an engaging and authoritative treatment of Australian competition law and is an ideal text both for practitioners and for those studying the subject for the first time.

The clear explanations of complex concepts and the lively style foster a sound understanding of the legal principles of competition law in Australia and its economic underpinnings. It includes a chapter how to understand competition law cases to develop skill in area-specific case analysis. The work focuses on the contemporary situation and recent developments but also explains the historical context using analogies from popular culture.

The new edition has been fully revised and updated to cover recent developments in case law, policy and legislation, including:

  • Legislative changes to the substance and structure of competition law and policy introduced following the Final Report of the Harper Review into Competition Law and Policy;
  • ACCC v Chopra (2015) which potentially signalled the end of the practice of the ACCC and potential respondents agreeing to civil and criminal penalties;
  • Significant Federal Court decisions on market definition, collusive behaviour and resale price maintenance, including the ACCC v Flight Centre litigation
  • New ACCC enforcement policies, including the Informal Merger Review Process Guidelines (2013).

Features

  • Written in a lucid, accessible style with frequent examples and questions
  • Disusses contemporary situation, upcoming developments and historical context to encourage critical thinking about the law and options for reform
  • Includes chapter objectives and summaries to promote understanding and retention of content
  • Provides a chapter on analysis of competition law cases to develop skill in area-specific case analysis
