Immerse yourself in the legal and policy regimes governing the supply and use of telecommunications and cyber technology, exploring the regulation of networks, services, communications and infringements. Investigating the legal, social and economic issues surrounding digital technology, digital currency and artificial intelligence, this interdisciplinary taught Masters allows you to bring together the profound and exciting areas of computing and law. This Masters will allow you to examine the legal and regulatory frameworks, and policing of cyber space, current and emerging technology.
