Course content

As technology rapidly evolves it can be a challenge for our legal systems to keep up. Professionals in this fast-paced sector require detailed and up-to-date knowledge from a source of reputable academic authority, as well as the critical skills to analyse future developments and respond decisively.

As part of Northumbria’s innovative and flexible LLM Law framework, the Cyber Law specialism has been designed to meet the needs of cyber legal practitioners, as well as other professionals working in the technology field who may benefit from a deeper contextual understanding.

It is not necessary to have an undergraduate law qualification and there are no jurisdictional restrictions, so you will be part of a diverse and intellectually stimulating cohort. You will learn from each other’s experiences in a relaxed and collaborative environment.

Northumbria Law School is one of the largest law school in the UK, and houses academics with an international reputation for research in Cyber Law. You will benefit from our strong links with the North East legal community, and learn from staff who continue to undertake high profile work in legal practice.
