Competition II: Competition Law in Eastern Europe and the CIS examines the regulation and promotion of competition in countries moving from planned to market - based economies. The course will address the special problems presented by an attempt to move quickly form an industrialized planning system to competitive markets. The class will assess the applicability of "classical" legal and regulatory models, which developed gradually and focus on the prevention of distortions faced by "transforming" countries in which competition must be created where it was previously actively discouraged. Students will evaluate alternative models and generate their own suggestions for appropriate legal schemes in this area. The class will also address some of the larger structural and systemic issues raised by the institutions of modern market regulation, including the patterns of enforcement, the nature of the powers required and the place of such institutions in the constitutional scheme.
