This paper presents a model of joint action and shows how it helps in the analysis of certain legal issues. I first provide a model of reliance and expand it into the model of joint action. Then I demonstrate the legal applications by arguing that concerted practices within the meaning of EC competition (antitrust) law do, and agreements do not, instantiate the model; the conclusion on agreements is shown to have consequences for both competition law and contract law. Finally I argue that joint action does not involve obligation.

Keywords: Legal philosophy; antitrust law; concerted practices; legal theory
