Program Description:

The LL.M. in Law, Technology and Governance offers students an innovative and internationally focused programme dealing with law, commercial activity, science and technology and how they intersect. This course is unique in its treatment of the area. The mandatory modules in regulation, governance and enterprise provide an overall framework, giving coherence to the degree and bringing out the common themes. The optional modules deal with topics at the core of current concerns for those working with technology in law, business and government. This programme will provide a solid grounding for future practitioners, academics and policy-makers. Led by a dynamic team of experts at NUI Galway, with national, European and international teaching and research profiles, students will acquire expertise in their chosen subjects along with an ability to appraise critically the problems which arise for law and policy-makers in this rapidly-changing area. This is further enhanced by the co-teaching of the mandatory courses by all lecturers of the optional courses, where possible, which fosters a transparency and a collaborative spirit among colleagues in the design and delivery of this LL.M. Students will benefit greatly in their academic and professional development from this vibrant, intellectually challenging and forward-looking degree programme.
