University of Texas School of Law Launches New LL.M. Concentration in Cybersecurity

Transdisciplinary program to cover the legal, policy, and technical implications of this burgeoning field

The Austin-based University of Texas School of Law has announced the launch of a new LL.M. concentration in Cybersecurity. 

The new program will look at the legal, policy, and technical aspects of cybersecurity law. Offered in conjunction with the Integrated Cybersecurity Studies Program at the Robert Strauss Center for International Security & Law, the program is designed to be transdisciplinary: courses in the program will be open not just to law students but those studying in other graduate programs across the campus. 

Students in the Cybersecurity LL.M. must take the following courses:

  • Cybersecurity Law & Policy
  • Technology of Cybersecurity: An Introduction for Law and Policy Students
  • Writing Seminar: Emerging Cybersecurity Legal and Policy Issues
  • International Law of Cyber Conflict
  • Privacy Law

With the new program, the University of Texas joins a growing group of law schools—mostly in the US—offering Cybersecurity LL.M. programs.
