Some of the CTEs for Antitrust say McGinnis assumes everyone has an economics background. True?
I don't entirely agree with this. The first class or two are a primer on everything econ you need to know to understand what is covered in class (plus a little) and were pitched at an introductory level. I had taken zero economics classes before AT, had no business background, and was comfortable, though I did spend a few days early in the semester reviewing those first two or so lectures.
All that said, he will expect you to master what he covers, and he will cold call regularly and thoroughly. So it is an intense class; go in with your eyes open to the fact that if you don't do the reading you might be uncomfortable, though he allowed people to pass. Could be tricky with a non-Chicago OCI schedule maybe?
If you decide the AT workload is okay with you, I think it would help more than you might expect with the others. With telecom because major recurring themes are structural regulation and competition. And with Copyright, one of the major schools of thought that professor covers is economic.
