Information Technology Law
This course promotes advanced knowledge and understanding of information technology law, in its broadest sense, within international, European and domestic settings. You will develop an understanding of information technology law not just in its legal but also its social, ethical, cultural and commercial contexts. The programme gives you the opportunity to study subjects where information technology law interfaces with other disciplinary dimensions of the law, with modules in intellectual property law, commercial law and medical law. This programme focuses on the regulatory framework that governs information technology within international, European and domestic settings. The programme is highly topical, exploring the 2nd generation (and sometimes even 3rd generation) of regulation that has evolved from the legal framework of the early 2000s. New developments in technology are also a key focus, as these force us to constantly review the very concept of information technology and appropriate legal responses. Information technology regulation operates across jurisdictions, and a cross-fertilisation of regulatory responses occurs at the interface between, domestic, regional and international law. Our aim is to enable you to understand this cross-fertilisation, to be able to contextualise it and place yourself within it.
