  • Analyse how computer and communications technology has affected the application of traditional legal principles.

Programme for Non-Law Graduates

We have created a pathway for non-law graduates to participate in our Technology, Media and Telecommunications Law programme.

These graduates will complete pre-sessional modules of: Legal Systems, Research Skills and Writing for IT Law (studied between January - May 2020 (January 2020 intake only). They will then join the existing Technology, Media and Telecommunications Law programme starting with a compulsory module in Legal Principles and Concepts in Computer Law.

Further credits are then obtained through a combination of optional taught online modules, dissertations (10,000 or 20,000 words) and seminar presentations.

The aim is to provide non-law graduates with a foundation in legal writing, research skills, and legal systems and enable them to access and understand legal resources and to apply all of this knowledge to the computer and communications law programme.
