About

This LLM in Information Technology Law (Online Learning) at The University of Edinburgh focuses on the regulatory framework that governs information technology within international, European and domestic settings.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

The LLM in Information Technology Law (Online Learning) at The University of Edinburgh  is highly topical, exploring the second generation – and sometimes even third 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.
