Governance and Law in Digital Society
In the modern globalised world, privacy and security are two topics that do not lose their relevance. On the contrary, incidents demonstrate how they affect our daily life. This LLM programme discusses the need to protect the privacy of citizens online, but also looks at the risks of the dependency on the private sector in IT projects and describes online tools to increase the effectiveness of law enforcement.
Our law students are interested in studying how governments deal with challenges IT raises. Consequently, they understand that it is in their interest to have knowledge of social sciences. If they have no prior knowledge, they are willing to obtain this during a Summer pre-LLM.
This master responds to an increasing demand of the labour market, since there is a great need for lawyers with knowledge of public administration to deal with the aforementioned issues.
