Just How Future-Proof Are Europe's Laws?

Are you interested in privacy, cybersecurity, blockchain, artificial intelligence, automated government decision-making and platform economies, as well as the potential ramifications of these developments for our society and its underlying values and the rule of law? 

Do you, as a legal expert, want to make a significant contribution to the fields of both law and technology? If so, then we invite you to learn more about the LLM in Law and Technology in Europe at Utrecht University .

As a student on the programme, you will examine the role played by the EU as it looks to regulate and police these technologies, and whether Europe’s laws are ‘future-proof’ enough to withstand continuing technological innovation and change.

During the Law and Technology in Europe programme at Utrecht University, you will:

  • Study the evolving relationship between law and technology, while crossing the boundaries of ‘classical’ subsystems of law.
  • Explore how digital advancements impact different actors within society and study the possibilities and pitfalls of potential legal responses.
  • Examine the multilevel legal order of the EU and its growing role in shaping the regulatory response to technological developments
  • Anticipate future developments in technology and digital innovation, and potential EU responses.

Career opportunities

Digital technologies are ubiquitous and play a role in all domains of the law. There is a growing need for lawyers with firm knowledge and understanding of the workings of these tools and their impact on the law. 

Professionals with a Master’s in Law and Technology will become the policy- and lawmakers of the future, as well as tomorrow’s legal practitioners. 

After finishing your studies, you can work as a:

  • Lawyer, judge, consultant, or policy officer in a national or international government organisation, in business or in a regulatory agency.
  • Teacher or researcher/PhD in any of the fields of law related to law and technology.
