Introduction

This advanced programme helps students gain a deep appreciation of how law interacts with technological innovation. What social challenges are posed by technological change? How does law address those challenges? And what impact does technological innovation have on the practice of law?

Drawing on the School of Law’s substantial profile in technology, e-governance, intellectual property and innovation, students on the programme have the opportunity to develop specialist expertise in law, governance and the ‘fourth industrial revolution.’

The programme places employability skills at its heart. Employers are very interested in law graduates who are tech-savvy and are clear and comfortable communicators, whether with clients or more generally. We embed skills-development directly into the curriculum as such, through project-based learning work, computational skills and elsewhere.

Law was ranked Top 10 in the UK for graduate prospects (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022) This employer focused programme places employability skills at the core of the student experience (including problem based learning and leadership modules), introducing students to the interplay of and interfaces between technology and law. Employers will be involved in assisting on project-based learning and in delivering guest lectures to students.
