Interuniversity Certificate in Competition Law

What they say about us?

“The BSC program was especially suited for my situation, allowing me to learn the EU Competition law and economics without disturbing my professional career. The outstanding quality of the professors provides students with the availability to think out of the box by solving competition cases inside and outside the classroom”. (Alicia Dominguez-Contreras, GDF SUEZ)

"A diverse team of excellent professors, passionate BSC staff members and students from various backgrounds all contributed to a unique BSC experience!" (Steven Wittemans, KBC Group) 

"The BSC LLM was a great surprise! I had no background in competition law and economics, I was not totally familiar with the European laws and I was a little afraid of the level of difficulty that was expecting me. But after my first session with professors Nicolas Petit and Benoît Durand, I realized that the challenge would be a pleasant experience! The methodology used attends all kinds of students (from ones that have no background to the ones that are already working in the area), the economy professors do a great job simplifying what looks very difficult for lawyers (like me) and even though the sessions are only once a week, it does not feel like you are missing anything due to the quality of the lectures and the amount of reading materials that are provided. Besides, the facilities of the BSC are excellent, the student platform is a very useful tool, the faculty has a great team of professors and the different cultures and kinds of students made the atmosphere very interesting. I am glad I had this valuable and rich experience." (Michelle Potengy de Mello - Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)

"I recommend the BSC to anyone concerned by the exciting field of competition law because of its unique combination of a diverse faculty, its balance of law and economics, and its mix of top-level academic and hands-on practical content. It is an intense programme, and I advise participants to go all the way and take all the exams to maximise the return on their efforts." (Steve Leroy, AB-INBEV

"The programme is most valuable when applied in my daily work as a competition lawyer. It is set up in a way that makes is suitable for beginners and experts alike, by providing a general perspective not usually experienced in daily case work. The course material enables course participants to refresh and build on their knowledge." (Tinne Wouters, Olswang)

"I really enjoyed the strong practitioner-focus on current day antitrust law and economics. Seminars are well-designed, reflecting dynamic trends in competition." (Sujin Chan-Allen, Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton)
