Programme description

This programme aims to promote advanced knowledge and understanding of the relationships between law, technology, commerce and society in the widest possible sense.

It explores the role of law in responding to, regulating and promoting, new and emerging technologies, and also emphasises the role of technology in supporting and guiding legal and judicial processes.

The focus of the degree is on the international nature of the subject matter and each course offers a comparative analysis of current legal developments.

Programme structure

This programme offers a range of courses from the fields of technology, communications, IP and medical law with an international perspective, giving you the option to tailor the programme to suit your needs and interests.

The programme consists of 180 credits, comprising taught courses worth 120 credits (60 credits per semester) and a 10,000 word dissertation worth 60 credits.

Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances or lack of demand for particular courses, we may not be able to run all courses as advertised come the start of the academic year.

Details of the programme structure can be found on the Law School's website.

Learning outcomes

Having completed the programme, students will emerge with an understanding of technology-related law and technology support for legal processes, not just in their legal but also their commercial, social, ethical and cultural contexts.
