A quick definition of competency:

Competency refers to a person's ability to understand problems and make decisions. It can also refer to a person's ability to stand trial in a criminal case, which is measured by their capacity to understand the proceedings, consult with their lawyer, and assist in their defense. Fair competition is when businesses compete for the same customers in an open and just way, while horizontal competition is when a seller competes with its competitors and vertical competition is when participants at different levels of distribution compete with each other.

A more thorough explanation:

Definition: Competency refers to a person's mental ability to understand problems and make decisions. It can also refer to a criminal defendant's ability to stand trial, which is measured by their capacity to understand the proceedings, consult with their lawyer, and assist in their defense.

Examples:

  • A person with a mental illness may be evaluated for competency to determine if they are able to make decisions about their own care.
  • A criminal defendant may undergo a competency evaluation to determine if they are able to stand trial and participate in their defense.

These examples illustrate how competency is used to assess a person's mental ability to make decisions and participate in legal proceedings. It is important to ensure that individuals are competent to make decisions and participate in legal proceedings to ensure fairness and justice.
