Master Law & Technology
The most prominent program linked to TILT is the Master's program in Law & Technology. Within this program the impacts of technology are studied from legal, ethical, political, technical and societal perspectives, raising questions about the need, desirability and preferred modality of regulation to mitigate the possible negative impacts of technological change on society.
Master Law & Technology
The Law & Technology program includes courses on privacy and data protection, cybercrime, intellectual property rights management, legal aspects of biotechnology, risk management and regulation, and ethics of technology.
Yearly, the program attracts some 130 students from all over the world. Students are trained in assessing the mutual shaping between law, technologies, and society, by an interdisciplinary team of lawyers, technology philosophers and social scientists.

What drew you to the L.LM. in Law & Technology?
“Before coming to Tilburg, I was an M&A lawyer in India for about three and a half years. I enjoyed being an M&A lawyer, but I wanted to specialize in privacy, data protection and technology laws. The courses I am taking here help prepare me for my aspirations to be a policy advisor.”
