Antitrust World Reports by Professor Keith N. Hylton

AntitrustWorldWiki.com is a collaborative database covering antitrust laws around the world. Its purpose is to provide information on the key provisions of antitrust laws in a manner that enables users of this wiki to compare antitrust enforcement regimes around the world. We will expand the site to include new information and to enable users to post comments and observations.


Keith N. Hylton, a professor of law at Boston University, has published numerous articles in American law journals and peer-reviewed law and economics journals. His antitrust textbook, Antitrust Law: Economic Theory and Common Law Evolution, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2003. View full faculty profile.
