Course content

With rapid advances in technology and daily leaps in scientific understanding of the issues that impact our everyday lives, society is changing at an unprecedented rate. Law, too, is impacted by and confronts technological and scientific change, both in relation to changes in professional practice and the sort of knowledge and matters that come to be regulated and legislated for. We have designed a course that will help you develop your knowledge of key legal issues relating to technological and scientific development.

The Law and Technology LLM fosters critical questioning of technological and scientific change, specifically in relation to law. The course also engages with political, social, and ethical questions relating to how law captures and makes use of changes in technology and scientific knowledge. The relationship between law and technology, and the associated ethical questions that emerge within this field, is dynamic, so this course aims to provide you with a space to evaluate current challenges and consider potential regulatory responses. This LLM will equip you with the key analytical and research skills that can be harnessed within the profession and beyond.

Teaching will take place through a mix of practical, creative and collaborative learning, and independent research opportunities with set materials and tutor-facilitated discussions, both in class and online. The course will help you acquire and focus on the skills necessary in the legal profession and beyond, helping to enhance your employability in legal tech related areas, such as those concerning legal practice and innovation, legal ethics, legal and public policy research, and compliance and regulation. It will also provide good grounding for roles in the civil service, charitable work and social advocacy.
