University of Groningen Announces New Technology Law and Innovation Program

The specialized program offered by the Dutch university will focus on the relationship between Technology Law and innovation, with admissions already open for 2023-2024

The University of Groningen’s Law Faculty has recently announced a new LL.M. program in Technology Law and Innovation. The one year program will explore how Technology Law and innovation influence each other, drawing from the research of experts in the area. The program aims to provide an “in-depth reflection on innovation using a technology law 'lens'.”

Prof. Jeanne Mifsud Bonnici, Academic Director of the program, pointed out that “'You can see this LL.M. as the leader of the next generation of LL.Ms. in Technology Law, building on the pre-existing knowledge many students already have in this field. This allows deep-dives into course topics and students can expect to leave the programme with very advanced levels of knowledge on the current legal developments in tech law and innovation.”

The program seeks to provide students with an advantage in the competitive technology market, imparting a special emphasis on critical thinking and problem solving. “What is also special about the LL.M. is the innovation perspective: innovation is not just another aspect of discussion but is a guiding tread in all the courses offered,” adds Prof. Bonnici.

The Technology Law and Innovation LL.M. is aimed at Technology Law graduates who want to delve deeper into the link between their field and innovation. Applications are currently open for studies set to start in September 2023.
