Law and Technology (LLM)
Many new technologies impact our society and raise questions regarding how to regulate these new technologies. Providing cutting edge knowledge within the burgeoning field of technology regulation, Law and Technology gives answers to the challenges of today’s technology driven society. In addition to traditional legal doctrine, you will also learn about regulatory issues in the spheres of public, private, and criminal law, and such subjects as comparative law, jurisprudence, ethics, and public administration.

Chloë BaartmansAssociate Bird & Bird
"People really come to us when the legal issue becomes complex and unobvious, so the work you do is most often very intellectually challenging."
