At International Cyber Regulation and Policy from Edge Hill University you will discover the major challenges faced by lawmakers in regulating cyberspace and technology, such as artificial intelligence. Developing legal research skills and problem-solving skills to gain specialist insight in resolving complex issues, you can explore topics such as regulatory and governance theory, cyber property and cyber rights, terrorism and serious organised criminal use of technology, cybercrime and information security.
On successful completion of this programme, you will be ideally placed to secure employment with an independent legal practice firm with expertise in the defence of the infringement of rights matters, such as intellectual property rights, data privacy rights, and access and authorisation rights, and law enforcement agencies, such as working as part of a cybercrime policing unit.
You will also be especially well suited to compliance roles in the legal departments of IT companies, such as internet access platforms, or national telecommunications regulatory bodies. Alternatively, you may wish to proceed to PhD study and potentially embark on a research career in these areas of the law.
