LLM in Innovation, Technology and the Law

Format: Online

Program Description:

The LLM in Innovation, Technology and the Law promotes advanced knowledge and understanding of the relationship between law, technology, commerce and society in the widest possible sense.
This unique and internationally focused LLM programme explores how the law responds to, regulates, and promotes new and emerging technologies.
Innovative technologies and convergence in technologies are causing unprecedented societal change. New legal issues are arising, and new regulatory responses emerging. The law can help – or hinder – society’s ability to reap the optimal rewards from technological development.
Across the programme, you will study different modes of regulation – the law, the markets, the technology itself – and critically analyse the advantages and disadvantages of each. Since new technologies will inevitably come up against international legal regimes, the international context is another key theme of this LLM programme.
This LLM will enable you to develop an advanced knowledge of domains where law engages with technology, awareness of the problems in the area and understanding of the differing approaches to their solution.
