LLM in IP/Information/Technology / Edinburgh v. KCL v. QMUL


silviaa

Hi everyone,

I have got accepted (conditional offers) to the following programs in the field of law & technology:
- QMUL - Computer and Communications Law
- Kings College London - IP law & Information Law
- Edinburgh Law School - Innovation, Technology and the Law

Does anyone know which it the best program in this field?

What would be more valuable to me? - considering I want to work in information technologies companies in the future and my passion is in data protection and information law

I'd love to hear more from current students and almuni.

Thank you in advance!

Best,
Silvia

I'd go with Edinburgh because of its better international reputation (right behind Oxbridge and LSE among UK schools) and the very interesting courses for the Innovation, Technology and the Law program (it has robotics and AI!). I, too, want to specialize in technology law and when I was deciding which programs to apply to, I reckoned that Edinburgh is probably only behind Stanford's LST program in respect of that particular specialization (Berkeley is also well regarded, but its LLM program is still general, and you only get a certificate for attending IT law courses--not a full-on specialization). Hope this helps.

I am also considering Edinburgh LLM, did you attend it yourself or are you planning to?

I applied and received an offer, but I had to decline because I was admitted to another school higher up my personal preference.
