Leiden University’s Master of Laws in Advanced Studies in Law and Digital Technologies explores the law and governance relating to the internet, computers, mobile devices, persuasive technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), autonomous systems, etc. These digital technologies present unprecedented challenges to the law. They raise questions about their governance (e.g., in relation to the global reach and jurisdiction) and can both promote and threaten long-held fundamental values and rights, such as the right to privacy. Moreover, they can be effective tools for (cyber)crime, or impede government accountability if not used according to legitimate procedures. While the legal system is challenged by digital technologies, it is also the most powerful tool for regulating them. In this programme you will explore the multi-dimensional relationship between law and digital technologies with academic and professional experts in the field. Coursework focuses on regulatory theory (internet governance and techno-regulation) and national, European and international law (hard law, soft law and case law), but also on exploring broader ethical, societal challenges of digital technologies and gaining insight into the technology.
