Course summary

This programme focuses on the regulatory framework that governs information technology within international, European and domestic settings. The programme 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.


Students must successfully complete six courses, four of which must be compulsory courses, and a dissertation during their chosen duration of study. Courses listed below are for the 2018/19 academic year: • EU Data Protection Law • Electronic Commerce Law • Information Technology Law • Information: Control and Power • International and European Media Law • Communications Law . / Students can also choose courses within the areas of intellectual property law, commercial law and medical ethics.
