Course overview

The PG Dip Legal Technology Part-time course is the perfect study option for law and non-law graduates seeking to advance their knowledge of Legal Technology without committing to a full master’s programme. The course is suitable to a range of goals and can benefit those aspiring to progress in their current careers, plan to start their own business, as well as those simply wanting to immerse themselves in the study of technology in the legal sphere. Whatever the aspirations, the programme has been designed to help students fulfil them.

Both programmes feature an award-linked module (Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain in Law), which will examine how technological advancements are transforming decision-making and redefining notions of ‘normal’ in legal practice operations. The module will also investigate the two central technologies enabling this change: artificial intelligence and blockchain. The students will also be given the opportunity to gain practical experience of these technologies, examining how they work and the kinds of legal and regulatory issues their use can pose.

The highly flexible structure of this programme enables students to fashion their degree according to their career goals, whatever they may be.
