Course content

The LLM in LegalTech is an innovative and topical master’s programme, which explores how technologies such as Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain impact on legal services.

Organisations from both the legal and the tech worlds will be involved in the delivery of the programme, which will offer opportunities to work with artificial intelligence systems; to develop LegalTech apps and solutions; to become comfortable working with Big Data, and to understand the legal and regulatory challenges associated with technology.

Key features:

  • Be one of the UK’s first LLM in LegalTech graduates!
  • Gain the knowledge and experience to develop into a 21st century lawyer/legal service practitioner able to deploy different technologies to aid legal practice and to drive innovation across the profession.
  • Discover how Artificial Intelligence is applied to the Law (e.g. introduction to theory, techniques, and tools) and how the Law is applied to AI (e.g. legal, regulatory and ethical impacts of automation and information access).
  • Learn AI concepts and work with AI tools to develop your own LegalTech solutions, gain experience working with “Big” and Small Data, and apply your knowledge in hands-on practical exercises.
