LLM students at QMUL to study innovative academic course on e-disclosure
Master of Laws students at The School of Law, at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL), will be the first in the UK to study a new academic course in e-disclosure.
The teaching of this ground-breaking new course will be delivered by leading lawyers and practitioners in this area, and the LLM students will undergo hands-on training using leading e-disclosure software, Relativity by KCura.
The Professor of Information and Communications Law at QMUL’s Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS), Ian Walden, explains, “e-disclosure is now firmly at the heart of modern legal practice. It is a worldwide application of electronically stored information that will present new challenges for lawyers. For students to receive training by the leading experts in this field and get hands on training with Relativity, is a huge opportunity.”
Professor Walden continues, “The environment in which our students will work spans the full range of digital and electronic material including emails, presentations, voicemail, databases, audio and video files, social media posts, and web sites. It’s critical that law students are able to fully interact with this sort of content from day one in their careers.”
The LLM at QMUL is available to study full-time for one year or part-time for two years, and the 11-week e-disclosure module forms part of this LLM program. Students will be marked on an essay basis for 80% and 20% on a practical basis.
