New courses for September 2020

LLM/MSc Corporate Law and Computing

​New for September 2020, the new LLM/MSc Law and Technology Masters degree is a practical and highly innovative programme designed with high levels of industry input and with industry placements available.  It will develop the students’ knowledge of the intersection between corporate law and legal technology to make for a highly sought-after graduate in this emerging area.

In particular, it will enable students to identify appropriate applications of legal technology in practice, to understand the strengths and weaknesses of competing algorithmic approaches, and to apply techniques in data science and data analytics to optimise legal business processes.  Modules are available in both law and computer science, and, depending on the preponderance of credits in either area, the student will graduate with either an LLM or an MSc.

​If you would like to register an interest in this programme, please leave your contact details with Project Co- ordinator Marcella McCann, m.mccann1@ulster.ac.uk and she will forward information and application details when the programme is formally validated in the Spring.
