Course Information

The Master's Degree Programme in Law and Information Society (LIS) is a two-year Programme that provides the students with the essential insights, capabilities and intellectual tools to analyse the legal problems of the information society. It concentrates on international and European levels of regulation and their interaction with national laws. The Programme offers a unique combination of private and public law (e.g. IP and European constitutional law) and interdisciplinary perspectives (e.g. economic analysis of law and modern legal theory).

The LIS programme is based on a mix of advanced research-oriented perspectives and more practically-oriented lectures and exercises, thus providing the students with a balanced combination of theoretical insights and practical capabilities. Developing one's skills in legal analysis, critical thinking, research and writing is important for lawyers in demanding positions and legal scholars alike.
