    The award-linked module for this programme (Artificial Intelligence and Blockchain in Law) will consider how disruptive legal technologies are bringing about a fundamental shift in decision-making and shaping a new normal in legal practice operations. The module will look at the two key technologies facilitating this change: artificial intelligence and blockchain. This module will allow you to get hands-on with the technology, exploring how it works as well as the legal and regulatory issues its use presents.
  • In addition to a general induction to the programme, there is a two-week induction covering the Key Principles of the English Legal System. This is compulsory for students with a non-law background.
  • To help prepare you for your dissertation you’ll study a range of compulsory and further optional Research Methods Training sessions in your first terms.
  • We also offer the Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) and Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert) in Legal Technology if you would like to gain essential in-depth knowledge of Legal Technology without having to complete a dissertation.
