Swansea to Launch an LL.M. in Legal Tech

New LL.M. to explore how new technologies are shaping the legal profession

Swansea University's School of Law has announced that it will launch a new LL.M. program in Legal Technology.

The new Legal Tech LL.M. will explore how new technologies—such as artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, and online dispute resolution—will impact the future of the legal profession. It will cover topics such as the automation of legal services and digital intellectual property, among others.

With the new program, Swansea joins a small but growing group of law schools offering LL.M. programs and other law master's degrees in the Legal Tech space. Spain's IE Law School, for example, offers a Master in Legal Tech, which, according to the school, bridges the gap between innovation and law.

Likewise, Germany's Bucerius Law School offers a Legal Technology specialization as part of its Master of Law and Business program. The specialization explores how technological and organizational advances are reshaping how we think about the law.

The new Swansea LL.M. in Legal Tech is set to launch this October. For more information, please see see Swansea news release announcing the new program.
