The LLM Information Technology and Intellectual Property Law brings together two of the most important legal questions of the 21st century: the fate of law in the information age, and the management and exploitation of diverse forms of creativity, reputation and innovation. Building on a long record of teaching at the cutting edge of law and technology, the UEA Law School is home to a strong team of scholars investigating everything from IP enforcement to the rights and risks associated with ‘Web 2.0’. Students can choose from a range of specialised, internationally-focused modules on IT and IP, but can also take the opportunity to study subjects in the closely related field of media law, or other subjects offered in the School on commercial and competition law.
The LLM Information Technology and Intellectual Property Law is offered over one year full-time, or two years part-time. Students undertake a range of compulsory and optional modules taught by the Law School. They may also, with the consent of the Course Director, choose modules worth up to 40 credits from other postgraduate courses offered by the University.
