The research has examined the value of the adoption of criminal sanctions, the different type of criminal sanctions utilised in different jurisdictions, and the problems they have and will face in practice.

Research Interests

Angus MacCulloch's research interests lie primarily in Competition Law, particularly antitrust and enforcement issues, and EU Law, particularly free movement of goods, but he retains a wider interest in Regulation, White Collar Crime, and IP law.

The majority of his recent Competition Law work focuses on the impact of the introduction of the UK's cartel offence and the wider global move towards the criminalisation of cartel activity. A number of jurisdictions have moved towards the use of criminal sanctions to deter cartel activity, with varying degrees of success. The research has examined the value of the adoption of criminal sanctions, the different type of criminal sanctions utilised in different jurisdictions, and the problems they have and will face in practice.

His recent EU Law research has focussed on the EU Law challenges to the introduction of alcohol Minimum Unit Pricing (MUP) in Scotland, and EU law’s attempt to balance the often competition goals of enhancing free trade/competition and protecting public health.

Angus MacCulloch also continues to publish a popular Competition Law textbook, Competition Law and Policy in the EC and UK, now in its 6th edition. He is also one of the Editors of a popular Journal the Competition Law Review, founded in 2004, which is an increasingly important home for competition law scholarship. He is a founding member of the Competition Law Scholars Forum and maintains the 'Who's Competing?' blog.
