From cyber-security protection and regulatory compliance to core data asset rights and the long-term management of technology systems, the list of challenges posed by new and emerging technologies is expanding as rapidly as the technology itself.

Our MSc/LLM in Law, Artificial Intelligence and New Technologies offers the chance to gain a deeper, more systematic understanding of the problems that can arise when businesses and organisations attempt to harness the full power of new technology.

You'll explore issues such as data privacy law, AI and robotics regulation, as well as the underlying principles and concepts of Internet technologies, web-based applications and enterprise and data analytics systems.

Whether you come from a background in law, have an interest in technology or already work for a tech company or a business processing data, it will prepare you to provide appropriate guidance and solutions to successfully manage risks.
