Information Technology Law

This course will challenge you to master one of the fastest changing disciplines within law. The subject of information technology law moves at an astonishing pace - as quickly as new products and programs are created. Developments in the technology have enabled emerging digital technologies to create both new products and the markets for those products. Combined with similarly exponential advances in methods of communication and ways of doing business, the need for legislation to protect and guide human interaction has never been greater. You will begin by securing a comprehensive grounding in the current legal framework regulating ICT before exploring the rapidly developing legal perspectives on digital technologies, rights issues, intellectual property, commerce, product marketing, communication, computer programming and much more. An important part of the course is the writing of a detailed dissertation within the specialism of your choice. This is your opportunity to select a project topic which has a direct bearing on your professional life. Previous LLM students at Aberystwyth have found this opportunity to be invaluable in establishing a successful career. This course will be particularly attractive to those seeking a career in transnational corporations, software developers, corporate lobby groups, international law firms and a range of governmental and non-governmental organisations.
