It will provide students with the opportunity to investigate topics such as regulatory and governance theory, cyber property and cyber-rights, the place of Cyber Law, the policy and legal frameworks and modalities of regulation of technologies in cyberspace, alternative regulatory models, internet governance, cyber rights, cybercrime, emergent technologies, critical legal and political questions surrounding the implications of the use of technology, digital information devices, the influence of social norms, values and interests on the regulatory design of cyberspace.

At its core, the programme will provide postgraduate students with the opportunity to first develop a research focused, advanced, and evaluative understanding of the national and international regulatory and policy frameworks governing and shaping cyberspace and how to design and undertake advanced legal research by completing three taught courses and then go on to complete a significant research project on an aspect of cyber regulation and policy.
