LLM in electronic crime (cyber crime)


alexandra
My name is Alexandra and i am in my final year of sudies in the law school of Salonika,Greece. However, i am already very interested in electronic crime and want to study further on this area.That's why i thought of an LL.M. But i don't know if an LL.M is good enough and will give me the level of knowledge that i want.Furthermore,i don't know what is the most famous university that is organized at the area of cybercrime.Also, i have a Proficiency from the University of Cambridge. Is his enough or should i have exams for the TOEFL as well?

Hi Alexandra,

An LL.M will certainly set you up extremely well with respect for in depth knowledge about your chosen subject. LL.M's are ideal to give you the specialisation you require to get the job you require.

So are there any courses that cover this subject? It will come as no surprise to the regulars on the LL.M-guide.com forums to hear me say the LL.M Innovation, Technology and the Law (distance learning) has several areas which would be directly relevant to you:

For example our module: Forensic Computing and Electronic Evidence covers:

* Computer vulnerabilities
* Cyber-crime and computer-assisted crime
* "Deleted" data and evidence recovery
* Electronic Evidence Legislation - An Overview
* Forensic readiness - the CTOSE methodology
* Beyond the PC - Evidence Recovery from the Internet
* Beyond Keywords - Electronic Discovery
* Beyond Best Practice - Analysis of Legislation
* Beyond Words - Future Challenges to forensic computing
* Electronic evidence: Present & Future

The module: Information Technology, investigation and Evidence covers:

* Link analysis, organised crime & money laundering 1
* Link analysis, organised crime & money laundering 2
* Situational crime prevention and computerised anti-fraud measures
* Geographical information systems 1
* Geographical information systems 2
* Internet surveillance 1
* Internet surveillance 2
* Picture analysis and facial recognition 1
* Picture analysis and facial recognition 2
* Statistical databases and the 'marshalling of evidence'


The module Information Technology law covers:

* Introduction to cyberspace & cyberlaw
* E-signatures
* E-contracts
* E-commerce - payment systems
* E-consumer law
* Privacy & data protection
* Privacy & state and employee surveillance
* Intermediary/ISP liability
* Cybercrime
* Dispute resolution in cyberspace & ADR/ODR

The module Information Technology and legal reasoning covers:
* Case management 1
* Case management 2
* Legal expert systems and the dream of using 'strong' Artificial Intelligence 1
* Legal expert systems and the dream of using 'strong' Artificial Intelligence 2
* Decision support systems
* Legal information systems
* Courtroom and jury support systems
* Online dispute settlement
* Sentencing support systems
* The future of the legal profession in a computer environment


An LL.M programme in the UK requires 180 credits - 120 for course work and 60 for dissertation. The above modules are worth 20 credits each, so you would require a further 2 modules to make up the 120 required. But then you have your dissertation for the remaining 60 credits, which can be also be on the subject of electronic evidence and computer forensics! So you have a significantly large percentage of your entire LL.M related with hi-tech crime and IT law!

I'm unsure whether you have considered distance learning. However, the prospect of staying in Greece while you study at the The University of Edinburgh, must surely be appealing!?

I hope that the information I have supplied is of use. At the moment, I am unaware of any other LL.M programme which contains such indepth otherwise I would always suggest at least one other option. If anyone knows of another LL.M that covers similar subjects to the above, then I'd be delighted to hear!

You can find more information about our LL.M programme (and other distance learning opportunities) at the University of Edinburgh, School of Law's distance learning website

Many thanks

hi Colin and thank you for all the great information you have provided me with. courses, but i don't think i'm interested in distance learning. I want to actually live and study in a foreign country for many reasons. But i'm not sure whether this LLM you are talking about is provided only from distance learning.
Also, what about my english? should i give another exam for the TOEFL or is that not necessary?

many thanks again, Alexandra
