Descrição do programa

Digital technologies are reshaping virtually every field of law. The emergence and rapid development of technologies like artificial intelligence, blockchain and the metaverse have been testing the boundaries of existing legal rules and sparking debate on whether they are fit for purpose. The aim of this programme is to prepare students to understand and anticipate these challenges and to become skilled practitioners in a digital economy.

With that goal in mind, the programme is designed to provide students with the necessary technical knowledge on the functioning of emerging technologies, starting with an intensive one-week bootcamp run by experts in engineering and computer science. We believe that our graduates will only be able to competently engage with the stakeholders of a digital economy – be they regulators, start-up entrepreneurs or major tech companies – if they grasp how the technological context shapes the legal issues they are faced with.

Technology lawyers need also operate in the context of multiple jurisdictions and feel comfortable working with legal sources from different origins. In keeping with the approach of the other programmes offered by Católica Global School of Law, the courses taught within the LL.M. Law in a Digital Economy will have a global focus, instead of a strictly domestic or regional one.

Students will be able to choose from a variety of modules on topics like intellectual property, data protection, platform regulation, and many others. These are courses that will require students to actively participate in class discussions and group projects. Pro-active learning is essential to develop students’ critical thinking and adaptability – two skills that are crucial for those who will practice in a field of law that is in relentless evolution.
