About Innovation, Technology and the Law (Online Distance Learning) at University of Edinburgh

This unique degree programme explores how the law responds to, regulates, and promotes new and emerging technologies.

The programme aims to promote advanced knowledge and understanding of the relationship between law, technology, commerce and society in the widest possible sense.

Programme overview

Choosing from a wide range of available modules, you will examine the legal, ethical and regulatory issues related to technology related fields, such as:

  • Information technology
  • Intellectual property
  • Biotechnology
  • Medical sciences

The innovative potential of technology to support legal and judicial processes will also be covered. This programme will therefore enable you to develop an advanced knowledge of domains where law engages with technology, and a sophisticated awareness of problems and differing solutions in the area.

By the end of your studies you should have acquired a high level of knowledge in the field of law and technology, a sophisticated awareness of the problems in the area and of the differing approaches to their solution.
