There are three principal statutes dealing with antitrust laws at the federal level. They are the Sherman Antitrust Act, the Clayton Act, and the Federal Trade Commission Act. All three have been codified in Title 15 of the United States Code.

While most of U.S. antitrust law is federal, there are significant elements covered by state law. Researchers should consult the statutory codes of individual jurisdictions. Please see our state law research guides for the sources and organization of state law.
Federal administrative regulations concerning antitrust laws can be found in several titles of the Code of Federal Regulations. While many of these regulations appear in Title 15: Commerce and Foreign Trade, a comprehensive review of antitrust rules requires consulting multiple titles.
