Course content

The future of the law is digital. This innovative LLM offers you critical and intellectual specialisation in this rapidly developing area.
You’ll learn from today’s leading lawyers, and our research underpins our teaching. You’ll explore the issues responsible for placing the legal system at the forefront of governance of the internet. You’ll also gain theoretical and practical insights, enabling you to master the intertwined areas of information technology and intellectual property law.
The Sussex Law School provides a truly international, stimulating and engaging learning environment for you to build a rich base of knowledge. We will prepare you for your future career – our courses are designed with skills training at their core, teaching you to think logically about legal problems.
Based minutes away from silicon beach in Brighton and just an hour’s train journey from London, you’ll also have the opportunity to experience the work of digital law firms, and the formation of legislation in European institutions and United Nations bodies.
