LLM in Information Technology / IP


ersatz
Hi, I'm currently an undergrad student in Poland but I am already thinking of studying for LLM abroad. I am very much interested in Information Technology Law, Cyber Law, and Copyright (especially in the digital age). A lot of universities in the UK offer such post-grad courses and I'd be most interested in the University of Glasgow and University of Sussex. Could anyone tell me more about these two or any other LLM courses in IT/IP you're enrolled at? Any opinions would be very much appreciated.

I am not interested in practising law in the UK after that. My main interest is to work for the EU, a think-tank or be a researcher.

Hello ersatz, In Europe are a few LLM programs in ip law:
Stockholm
Maastricht
Uppsala
Queen Mary
Lund
MIPL Munich
Liege CEIPI
EUSLIP
Turin
Katholike Leuven
Dresden

Although you said that you are looking for an ip program in Europe I thought you might be interested in S. Boyd School of Law. They offer an LLM in Gaming Law - very up to date and with a similar curriculum. It includes all major subjects on intellectual property such as copyright, patents, trademarks and internet domain names but covers also law issues auch as law and policy of Gaming Equipment Manufacturers. I feel this has more depth altough it concerns mostly American/ International law.
Hope it helps!
