Develop your knowledge and understanding of the technological and legal aspects of Artificial Intelligence, big data, data protection and privacy law. Issues at the intersection of new and emerging technologies and the law are becoming a global priority as the value of big data and AI and the harm accruing from data security breaches and technological abuses, becomes more apparent. This is a multidisciplinary course that develops a broad range of skills and knowledge, to prepare you for a wide range of careers in the public and private sector, in addition to giving you a foundation in the areas of law and computer science.

To suit your individual interests, Law, Artificial Intelligence and New Technologies offers three pathways that cater for the diversity of students undertaking it and their particular expertise.

  • Pathway one is for Law graduates.
  • Pathway two is for Computer Science graduates or individuals that have expertise in the field.
  • Pathway three is for graduates from any other discipline.

The programme is unique in that it is interdisciplinary and fully integrated in both the School of Law and the School of Computing and Mathematics at Keele. You can combine the programme’s core modules with your choice of specialist options from both schools. You will have the opportunity to write a Master’s level dissertation addressing a legal or technological problem regarding new technologies co-supervised by academic staff from both schools.
