The links below will take you to study aids and practice exams for the Antitrust course. The study aids have been carefully selected and recommended for each course. The practice exams have not been. They are just a collection of exams I or others have found around the web. I tried to grab relatively recent exams and tried to pick only one or two from each professor.

Antitrust was one of my favorite classes. It has a fun mix of economics, law and even some math. That may not be for everybody, but it was a nice departure from the normal law school classes for me.

But, because it is a little different kind of a course, you want to approach it a little differently. Depending on how your professor approached the course, you may want to spend a good chunk of time working through supply and demand charts and making sure that you understand what are is deadweight loss and what that means, calculating HHI scores, figuring out what the price would be in a monopoly, etc. The odds are that your professor won't demolish you if you don't have any of that kind of stuff down. Lots of law students aren't very good at math or economics, and the professor knows that. So don't panic. But, if you have any interest or aptitude for that kind of stuff, that is an area of the course where you can really shine, and if you don't, it is an area where you have a significant liability that you ought to tackle.

The big problem with antitrust is the lack of practice exams. I have only found two. If you know of any other publicly accessible ones, please post them in the comments. Your professor or your school may also share a couple/few more. But, it is kind of a weird type of course, so practice exams become more important than usual, and at the same time, there are not a lot of practice exams. So, use them wisely. Take every one in a timed setting, then go back and review your answers and think through what you could have dnoe better afterwards.
