Introduction

By combining information technology and intellectual property law together, this programme offers a deeper understanding of the interrelationship between these two topics which have emerged as significant areas in the future development of law. The School has established links with the UCD School of Computer Science and Informatics to promote greater understanding in the information technology area. Members of staff in the Sutherland School of Law have engaged in major research in this area spanning the full range of information technology and intellectual property from internet filtering, data protection to the protection of confidential information.

  • To understand and think critically about various facets of Information Technology Law, Intellectual Property Law and their inter-relationship
  • To apply their knowledge and understanding of Information Technology Law and Intellectual Property Law to real and hypothetical factual situations
  • To conduct independent research and write coherent, well-structured papers.

Vision and Values Statement

This programme gives students, already holding an undergraduate degree in law or have practised law for a significant period, deeper understanding of the relationship between information technology and intellectual property law. Both have emerged as significant areas in law's future development. Graduate acquire the knowledge, skills and capacity to work in the area of information technology and intellectual property law, domestically or internationally, as a practising lawyer, in-house legal adviser, policy maker or researcher.

Students are challenged to understand and think critically about various facets of Information Technology law, Intellectual Property Law and their inter-relationship. The understanding thereby acquired is also relevant to their contribution as citizens in an increasingly wide range of areas.

We strive for a learning environment that encourages students to work individually or as part of a team, so they can develop their own and others' leadership, teamwork and communication skills, as well as integrating the different disciplinary perspectives offered in the curriculum for this programme, in collaboration with UCD School of Computer Science.

To these ends, the programme makes intensive use of teaching, learning and assessment approaches such as small group teaching, in-class presentations (individual and group) and academic writing. A 30 credit dissertation on a topic devised by the student is an integral part of the programme.
