This Master's programme covers the interplay between law and technology in Europe and teaches students about the legal challenges resulting from digitalisation. This thought-provoking Master’s dives deep into the fascinating digital and societal developments that are raising new questions at the intersection of law, regulation and technology. As a student on the programme, you will examine the role played by the EU as it looks to regulate and police these technologies, and whether Europe’s laws are ‘future-proof’ enough to withstand continuing technological innovation and change.

During the Master's in Law and Technology in Europe, you will:

  • Study the evolving relationship between law and technology, while crossing the boundaries of ‘classical’ subsystems of law.
  • Explore how digital advancements impact different actors within society and study the possibilities and pitfalls of potential legal responses.
  • Examine the multilevel legal order of the EU and its growing role in shaping the regulatory response to technological developments
  • Anticipate future developments in technology and digital innovation, and potential EU responses.
