About the Institute
The Jevons Institute for Competition Law and Economics at UCL (The
Jevons Institute), set up in 2006, aims through external events, research
projects, teaching and publications to:
- stimulate research and debate concerning the application of competition
law and industry regulation to the marketplace; and
- promote interaction among academic scholars in law and economics,
policymakers and enforcement officials, the judiciary, practitioners
and business leaders.
Our approach to legal doctrine and research in this area of law and policy
is based on two pillars:
- a strong interaction between legal principles and analysis and applied
economic theory and empirics;
- the use of comparative teaching and research methodologies involving
competition policy in developed and developing market economies.
The Jevons Institute co-ordinates UCL’s teaching offerings and
research activities which comprise a wide range of courses in antitrust
law, regulation and economics. We are committed to training the next generation
of leading practitioners, academics, and antitrust and regulation enforcers
and others involved in competition law and policy.
The Jevons Institute actively seeks to develop international links with
academic institutions and research bodies to promote joint initiatives
in pursuance of its aims.
The Jevons Institute has been named after William Stanley Jevons, one
of the foremost economists of the 19th Century. Read
