Academic Background

Elias Deutscher is a Lecturer in Competition Law and IP at the UEA Law School and a member of the Centre for Competition Policy (CCP). Elias holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education Practice (PGCERT) and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy

Elias’ area of research includes competition law, the interplay between competition and intellectual property law, and EU law. The focus of his research lies on the normative and historical foundations of EU and US competition law, the law and economics of mergers, horizontal and vertical restraints and abuse of dominance, as well as the challenges that digital platforms and rising levels of concentration pose to competition law and policy. His most recent research projects focus on the proposed regulatory frameworks for digital platforms, vertical online sales and advertising restraints, the assessment of price- and non-price (e.g. innovation, privacy, sustainability and resilience) effects in merger control, and the role of presumptions in competition law analysis. Elias also works on a forthcoming monograph on the relationship between competition, competition law, and democracy.

Elias has a background in law and political science. He holds a Ph.D. in law from the European University Institute (EUI) in Florence where he worked under the supervision of Prof. Giorgio Monti on the link between competition, competition law, and democracy. He also obtained a LL.M. in EU Law (specialisation in European Law and Economic Analysis) from the College of Europe in Bruges and a LL.M. in comparative, European and international law from the EUI. Elias also received a binational French-German Master of Arts in political science and European affairs from SciencesPo Lille and the Westfälische Wilhelms-University Münster. In 2016, Elias has been a doctoral visiting scholar at the New York University School of Law.
