Choices of LLM in Technology & Law (Tilburg, Leyden, Edinburg, LSE or LegalTech in Swansea)


Hello everyone,

I'm looking forward to do a LLM in IT law in Europe next year (beginning Jan or Sept 19). I'm pretty much interested in subjects surronding LegalTech in general (AI, blockchain, data privacy).

I'm looking for feedback concerning theses programs (and if possibl, comparison) :
- LSE, LL.M. Information Technology, Media and Communications Law
- Leiden University, Law and Digital Technologies (Advanced LL.M.)
- Edinburgh University, LL.M. in Innovation, Technology and the Law
- Tılburg University, LL.M Law and Technology
- Swansea University, LLM in LegalTech (this one is a brand new program looking very nice but what to think of this University?)

Does anyone has done/heard about one of these? What can be the differences behin what you find on their websites?

Thank you VERY MUCH for your time!

Simon

Always check the staff who teach the subjects - it's the profs (and their publications) that marks each programme out.
Also you may consider Sussex LLM in IT & IP (I declare an interest as I will be teaching in 2019) https://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/masters/courses/law-politics-and-sociology/information-technology-and-intellectual-property-law-llm/2018

I'm enrolled in the LLM in Law & Tech at Tilburg; finishing in about a month. I love the intensity of the programme, the structure of the curricula and the unquestionable expertise of the staff. I'm hoping to work in data privacy/information security so the expertise of the staff -- some of whom are renowned in their field of research, for e.g., Paul de Hert, Bart van der Sloot, Bert-Jaap Koops and Eleni Kosta, suited me just fine. I highly recommend the programme.

UK-wise, LSE is probably the best-known school, with Edinburgh up next. Swansea is better known for its maritime offerings, I'm not sure it would be the best choice for an LLM in IT Law.

I agree, check out the professors and networks (LSE hosts the Media@LSE lab, which I find interesting...)

Also, course content: do the courses on offer fit your needs and interests?
