QLLM191 Competition and Regulation in EU Healthcare Markets (Sem 2)

Module Description:

This module examines how EU competition rules and regulatory principles and processes affect healthcare markets. We will look at internal market rules primarily from the perspective of corporate actors (whether public or private) rather than individual patients and healthcare professionals. We will consider the legal regime for the placing of medicines and medical products on the market, market surveillance and product liability regimes as well as the application of competition law rules in this sector.

Module Aims:

In addition to equipping students with a solid knowledge on the legal framework applicable to medical and health-related goods and services in the EU internal market, the module aims to familiarise students with the complexities of regulating markets with a strong social/public service dimension and the legal tools and concepts developed in EU Law to address those complexities.
