Course overview

The PG Cert Legal Technology Part-time is a highly flexible study option, created for law and non-law graduates wishing to develop a comprehensive knowledge of Legal Technology without the need to commit to a full master’s programme. The course is well suited to a variety of goals, from career progression and entrepreneurship to developing an in-depth understanding of the extent to which technology is transforming the legal sphere. Whatever the goals, the PG Cert Legal Technology programme can help students achieve them.

Both programmes feature Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain in Law as their award-linked module. The module will explore the degree to which technological innovation is causing a profound shift in decision-making and forming a new normal in legal practice operations through the lens of the two main technologies enabling this change: artificial intelligence and blockchain. To supplement the complex theory, the module will give students the opportunity to test the technology, allowing for a richer understanding of its mechanism and the legal and regulatory issues its use poses.

The flexibility offered by this programme means that students can mould their degree according to their professional ambitions, regardless of what they may be.
