Course content

This programme is now available for entry in September 2018.

The LLM in Innovation, Technology and Law offers advanced study of a range of law or law-related subjects, which address the opportunities and risks posed by innovation and new technology.

The programme also offers an opportunity to develop more detailed knowledge, understanding and research skills in a chosen dissertation topic.

This unique degree programme explores the role of the law in regulating and promoting new and emerging technologies. The courses on offer allow students to examine legal, ethical and regulatory issues in fields such as information technology, intellectual property, data protection, biotechnology, medical sciences, online media and artificial intelligence.

The core subjects of the degree provide in-depth knowledge of domains where law engages with technology, laying the foundations for a specialised dissertation. By the end of their studies for this degree, students will have acquired a sophisticated awareness of the problems that arise in the field of law and technology and the differing approaches to their solution.
