A new LLM course on Law, Technology, and Innovation has been introduced by the University of Strathclyde Law School. Taught by visiting international researchers and subject matter experts, the course offers a combination of technology and legal abilities.

Graduates will learn about the legal framework governing the worldwide creation, development, and dissemination of technology while having the chance to construct their own technological ventures.

In light of the trend toward algorithmic regulation and automated decision-making fueled by artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, big data, and other advancements in computer power, students will examine legal concerns pertaining to innovation and leadership. Opportunities to learn programming languages and deepen one’s awareness of algorithmic bias will present themselves. Numerous subjects are covered in the elective modules, such as legal applications and coding for attorneys, legal statistics and machine learning, cyber security law, the economics of digital marketplaces, human rights and digital technologies, etc.

The LLM Law, Technology, and Innovation program can be finished full-time in up to a year. Students who successfully finish six modules and a summer project will be granted an LLM degree. Students can customize their learning experience to suit their interests and career aspirations by choosing from a variety of summer project alternatives, such as a coding project, upgraded research proposal, internship, dissertation, or consultation.

Furthermore, instead of applying for a dissertation as their summer project, students can seek to work as an intern or consultant. A minimum of 100 hours will be spent by students working for or being embedded with an outside organization; the details of the arrangement will change based on the demands of the outside organization. In lieu of a dissertation, students might choose to develop a more complex technology project for their summer project after having the chance to build basic projects in the technological modules.

To apply for this course, you must have a first- or second-class honours degree in law, or an equivalent degree from another country, in any subject. If the applicant has relevant work experience, additional qualifications might be approved. Furthermore, admission to this program does not require a degree in computer science or law.

For 2024 – 2025, the cost of enrollment for overseas students in this course is £21,700. The Humanities & Social Sciences Postgraduate Taught International scholarship is open to applicants from outside, which increases the course’s accessibility even more. The scholarship is worth between £4,000 and £5,000. To be eligible for a scholarship, students must be accepted into a full-time postgraduate teaching degree program beginning in the academic year 2024 – 25.
