This is a commercial law course, offering a series of standard modules with particular focus on modules that are at the intersection of law and technology, which is a topical and contemporary area of legal practice and academic research.

Additionally, some of the courses will be taught with industry collaboration in order to inject industry practice and ensure employability.

Apart from the compulsory dissertation module comprising 60 credits, all modules are optional, carrying 30 credit points each, and include the following: (a) Copyright & Information Law; (b) International Intellectual Property Law & Policy; (c) Internet Law & Policy; (d) Legal Technology, Innovation & Informatics; (e) International Corporate Law & Governance; (f) Corporate Social Responsibility & Human Rights; and (g) Ulster Business Law Clinic. Students are required to choose any four out of the seven modules.

The course is based at the University's Magee Campus in the heart of Derry/Londonderry. Derry is the second largest city in Northern Ireland and has excellent transport connections including an airport, a train terminal and a major bus station. Northern Ireland is in the United Kingdom but the border with the Republic of Ireland is only a few miles from Magee Campus. The Campus overlooks the historic city and spans one of the finest salmon fishing rivers in Europe, the majestic Foyle.The city has many places to eat and socialise and is within easy reach of the beautiful North Coast of Northern Ireland and the glorious beaches of Donegal.
