What will you learn?

The study of ICT law provides for opportunities to complexly understand regulatory issues related to development and practical applications of advanced information and communication technologies. Besides that, students have the opportunity to acquire in the course of their studies a unique methodological toolbox for approaching law as an information system (i.e. a system of formal signs whose purpose is to organise the society). Study in this programme leads to detailed understanding of both fundaments and the application layer of regulatory phenomena related to information and communication technologies (e.g. information privacy, cybersecurity) while providing for an opportunity to approach the law through the nonconformist method of virtualisation. The systematic assembly of profiling courses together with compulsory publications and practical colloquia prepares students for resolving hard interpretative and legislative questions of regulation of ICT, while providing them with tools and intellectual motivation for creative applications of informational-legal methodology in standard legal situations.

“Technology, humanity, law.”

Practical training

Practical training does not represent a compulsory part of the curriculum. There are irregularly organised colloquia with practicing lawyers (justices, solicitors etc.)

Career opportunities

The graduates are ready for higher seniority levels of legal counselling regarding ICT regulatory phenomena in private practice (bar practice, in-house practice etc.) or public service (judiciary, public prosecution etc.) The graduates are also fit to conduct independent research in ICT law at intermediate level of scientific seniority and to independently participate on collaborative academic and commercial scientific projects.
