Product Description


...a leading practitioner work on EU and UK law, regularly referred to by advocates before the higher Courts and cited in their judgments.

This is simply the most accessible textbook from which to study of any area of EU competition law, as well as equivalent UK law. (Aidan Robertson QC, Competition Law Journal)

Competition Law is invaluable to both law and economics students as well as practitioners and officials involved in competition law matters and our relationship with the European Union. (The Student Law Journal)

The book continues to deal with both EU and UK law and remains sufficiently critical and based on principle to keep students interested and sufficiently detailed and precise to be used by practitioners. (Valentine Korah, World Competition, Law and Economics Review)

5.0 out of 5 stars The benchmark for competition law textbooks 14 Feb. 2012
This 7th edition of Whish's classic textbook is fully updated to take account of the Lisbon Treaty, the Commission's Guidance document on the enforcement of Article 102 and the new Vertical Block Exemption, amongst others. As always, the book continues to explain this vast area of law in an engaging and accessible way, both for LLB and LLM students. Almost every topic and sub-topic is cross-referenced with suggestions for further reading, so again 'Competition Law' is very handy for those starting a dissertation and in need of some useful direction. The book is very well-structured, each chapter starting with a 'Contents' section, before dealing with the topic at hand in a very logical fashion. Theories and concepts are broken down with easy-to-follow headings and sub-headings - something I found indispensable when learning such a complex area of law.

The authors have clearly reached the top of their game and this is reflected in the incredible breadth and depth with which 'Competition Law' is written. I used the previous version of this book to my great advantage when I did my own LLM, and I bought this 7th edition for reference. Overall, an excellent investment and a very timely release, given all that has happened in competition law over the past three or fours years.

By Dafyddg
Whish has made the subject readily accessible for students and academics alike. Probably the UK's leading expert on competition law, Whish has again delivered the leading text on the subject. A must for any LL.B or LL.M student and a text for any unversity Competition law reading list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful handbook 16 Jan. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I like this book because of the various practical examples and judgments of the EU Courts it contains. I think the authors have summed up all the doctrine (including theirs) in this non-exensive book. I would buy it again.
