NYU/ Upenn/ Berkeley for antitrust and tech law?


Hello everyone,

I've recently been admitted to NYU, Upenn and Berkeley and started to confuse with choices.

I'm pursuing LL.M. in antitrust law and tech law because I'm going to work in govt sector (telecom regulator) after graduation.

Upenn is a great choice for antitrust, but not for tech law. While Berkeley is one of the best for tech law, their antitrust course is not that impressive.
NYU has pretty balance between the two areas of focus and ranks higher in general. However, I'm uncertain whether to choose balancing over one outstanding curriculum.

Btw, funding is out of my concern here as I got full scholarship from government.

What would you guys choose in this kind of situation?

Thanks in advance for your suggestion!

1. NYU - incredible faculty, highly regarded program, high ranking.
2. Berkeley - great for tech and science, not as strong as NYU for antitrust.
3. UPenn - brand name, i suppose. But not noteworthy for antitrust overall.

I think NYU is the best option. Hope this helps!

Of course it helps! Thanks a lot for your opinion. Antitrust is not a popular program in my country so I barely know about recognition for each school.
