Georgetown to Offer a New LL.M. in Technology Law and Policy

School will also offer a Master of Law and Technology, aimed at non-lawyers

Starting this fall, Georgetown University Law Center will offer a new LL.M. in Technology Law and Policy. 

The new program is aimed at law professionals and recent law graduates who are looking to better understand the intersection between policy and technology.

The program's coursework will touch on many topics, including for example, information privacy law, global tech law, and autonomous vehicles.

Also starting this fall, Georgetown will launch a similar program—the Master of Law and Technology, which will be aimed at non-law professionals. 

Both programs aim to tap into an increased demand for professionals at the intersection of law and technology. “When it comes to areas like data security, privacy, surveillance, artificial intelligence, fintech, intellectual property, and emerging technologies, the demand and need for law and policy expertise are profound,” according to Paul Ohm, professor of law and Georgetown Law’s associate dean for academic affairs.

For more information, please see Georgetown's news release announcing the launch of the two new technology law programs.
