Postgraduate Law Courses
A range of postgraduate law courses are available.
Companies have provided us with the following testimonials:
"The delivery of legal services is evolving quickly, and depends increasingly on the overlapping disciplines of data science. Ulster University’s new 'Corporate Law and Computing' course is an exciting opportunity to acquire the practical knowledge and skills that are much in demand, as legal practices of all types equip themselves with the resources they need to support markets, commerce and society in the new data-centric era."
Stephen Bartlett, EMEA Regional General Counsel & Global Co-Head Markets and Securities Services Legal, Citi
"Allen & Overy is a significant employer of law graduates in Northern Ireland and is supportive of the proposed new LLM/MSc law & technology masters programme. We are increasingly interested in employing graduates with multi-disciplinary skill-sets, particularly those with legal technology and computing backgrounds."
Angela Clist, Partner, Head of Legal Services Centre, Belfast, Allen & Overy LLP
"We would very much be interested in employing candidates that graduated from your programs that had legal / law training paired with computer science. It’s very much a skillset that will be increasingly in demand as we look for individuals who can bridge the data science through to practical legal application."
Nick Thomson, GM, iManage RAVN
The Legal Innovation Centre has also partnered with several technology solutions providers to give students exposure to some the applications and platforms widely used by some of the largest law and professional service firms.
