Counseling and Advocacy in Antitrust
Attorneys don't just practice law in a courtroom; they practice law in meeting rooms and boardrooms with officials and corporate clients. This practice simulation course will give students opportunities to practice these interactions with regulators, clients and judges through the lens of antitrust law. The course will be divided into four sections: Merger Advocacy Before the FTC or DOJ Antitrust Division; Implementing a Compliance Program; Exploring Settlement of Difficult Legal Issues; and Summary Judgment Motions on the Issue of Agreement. Each of the sections will include a discussion of the substance of a common antitrust issue and the counseling or advocacy issues that could surround it. At the end of each section, selected students will role-play a common method of applying the substance and counseling/advocacy discussed. Depending on enrollment, students will select three or four of the role-playing exercises in which to participate. All four sections will utilize fictionalized versions of facts and documents used by the instructor in practice.
