Course content

Privacy, intellectual property, data protection, big data, information security, digital threats and cyber space are issues that are becoming increasingly challenging. This programme provides a comprehensive grounding in the legal and regulatory environment in which these technological developments are taking place. Combining the all-important aspects of commercial law with the ever-increasing impact of information technology law, you will develop an in-depth understanding of the legal response to these changes and why the law is moving in a particular area. With a sound understanding of this important area of law and a readiness to apply that knowledge commercially, you will be well-equipped to compete for careers in the corporate and business world.
