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.
Courses are usually assessed by essays and other coursework such as problem-based exercises.
Candidates are also required to design and write an approved 10,000-word dissertation in an area covered by the courses in the dedicated programme.
The learning process is didactic, seminar-based and research-focused.
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.
