About

This unique and internationally-focused Innovation, Technology and the Law (Online Learning) programme at The University of Edinburgh explores how the law responds to, regulates and promotes new and emerging technologies.

Overview

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 Innovation, Technology and the Law (Online Learning) programme at The University of Edinburgh, 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.
