Course overview

The MSc Legal Technology is a highly flexible course, perfect for law and non-law graduates wishing to advance their knowledge of Legal Technology. The programme is designed to appeal to students with diverse goals and aspirations and is therefore suitable to both those driven by their desire to boost their careers prospects, start their own business, as well as those simply interested in learning more about how technology works in the legal sphere. Whatever your goals are, this course will give you the intellectual wherewithal to achieve them.

The award-linked module on this course is Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain in Law, designed to explore how technological innovation is fundamentally altering decision-making and forging a new normal in legal practice operations. The module will also consider the two main technologies enabling this change: artificial intelligence and blockchain. Upon completion, students will have gained the opportunity to practically familiarise themselves with the technology, investigating how it works and considering the legal and regulatory issues its use can pose.

The flexible nature of this programme means that students can craft their degree according to their own professional goals, regardless of what those goals may be.
