Overview

The Artificial Intelligence, Law, and Technology LLM is an interdisciplinary master's program that trains graduates to meet the pressing needs of industries, governments, and other stakeholders.

It addresses the growing demand for skilled professionals with a solid understanding of the evolving regulatory landscape on data governance, artificial intelligence, digital technologies, and platforms.

Our carefully selected compulsory, and wide choice of optional modules, explore the regulation of technologies, ranging from the protection of privacy in the age of AI, to intellectual property, big data and market competition and beyond. This allows you to tailor your programme to focus on your specialist area and career goals.

With the growing significance of AI, data, and the digital economy, coupled with the increasing complexity of regulations, employers are seeking job candidates equipped with advanced, specialised training to stay updated with new technological regulatory landscapes.

To do this, you will need an IELTS for UKVI or Trinity SELT test pass gained from a test centre approved by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) and on the Secure English Language Testing (SELT) list. This must have been taken and passed within two years from the date the CAS is made.

Teaching and Learning

You'll be taught by experts in your field of study, and you'll have the opportunity to interact and engage with academics and your fellow students throughout your programme.

Your programme will consist of a variety of learning and studying activities, including lectures and seminars which will be delivered in person on campus. These will be supported by a number of online learning and studying activities when appropriate to provide a rich and dynamic experience. At LLM level students will study four 15 credit modules each term for two terms across the academic year.

Each module will have on average eight two-hour in person contact time per week in seminars, workshops or lectures. After the end of the taught part of the Programme, there is the dissertation. All students will also have the opportunity to seek guidance during the feedback and consultation hours of their lecturers (2 1-hour slot every week).

Additionally, students can seek support in individual meetings with their personal tutors, both on campus and online. There will also be regular cohort meetings and student society events, at both programme and departmental levels.

All lectures, seminars, and other social activities will occur in person on the Brunel campus. Online activities will be used to support your learning when appropriate. It is expected that students will regularly attend these events, as sustained engagement with a learning community is a central dimension of the Brunel experience.
