University of Edinburgh
Innovation, Technology and the Law (Online Distance Learning)
This unique degree programme explores how the law responds to, regulates and promotes new and emerging technologies. The programme promotes advanced knowledge and understanding of the relationship between law technology, commerce and society in the widest possible sense. This unique and internationally focused LLM programme explores how the law responds to, regulates, and promotes new and emerging technologies. Innovative technologies and convergence in technologies are causing unprecedented societal change. New legal issues are arising, and new regulatory responses emerging. The law can help - or hinder - society's ability to reap the optimal rewards from technological development. Across the programme, you will study different modes of regulation - the law, the markets, the technology itself - and critically analyse the advantages and disadvantages of each. The potential of technology to support legal and judicial processes is also examined. This LLM will enable you to develop an advanced knowledge of domains where law engages with technology, awareness of the problems in the area and understanding of the differing approaches to their solution.
You must complete a total of six courses (120 credits), five of which must be from the compulsory courses. You also complete a dissertation (60 credits) over your chosen period of study.
