Ranking results

The Antitrust Newsletters Ranking rewards newsletters & blogs considered overall (as opposed to the Articles Awards which reward individual articles). The 30 best professional antitrust publications - out of 80 - have been reviewed by the Editorial Board in order to provide practitioners with a useful description and ranking. Such publications include newsletters, blogs but also client briefs, memoranda, e-books, and even webinars accompanied by written presentations. The present Ranking is based on the publications freely made available on the Internet.

Why a ranking of antitrust newsletters?

The quality and usefulness of antitrust professional publications vary greatly but they are going in the right direction due to increased competition between firms and also between university competition law centres. However, users’ ability to read or browse such publications is limited; there are just too many of these publications and too many similarities between them for users to effectively assess what is worth reading or watching. Ranking such publications is intended to guide users on which publications they should read or view first, depending what they are looking for.


Antitrust professional publications are ranked according to 7 criteria:

- Country coverage
- Case coverage
- Website’s accessibility
- Innovation
- Readership
- Counsels’ Choice
- Articles, selected, shortlisted and winners for the Antitrust Writing Awards

The assessment of the above criteria is based on a combination of objective and subjective considerations, together with individual interviews.
