Course Summary

The Programme provides you with knowledge in areas of law needed in a corporate, banking and finance, and law firm environment, as well as computing fundamentals in software development, data science and business intelligence.

Created in response to demands from industry, and with significant input from major global banking, legal, and consulting firms, the Corporate Law and Computing programme at Ulster University provides you with a unique opportunity to learn from seasoned industry experts across disciplines. It presents an exciting, first-of-a-kind partnership between the School of Law and the School of Computing, Engineering, and Intelligent Systems.

The fields of law and technology need transdisciplinary experts who can work within different teams at law firms, tech companies, government, and civil society. As technology becomes a bigger part of our lives, firms look to adopt it, tech companies grapple with existing laws, and lawmakers scramble to regulate it. People who can comfortably sit at the intersection of business, law, and technology are needed and sought after. Those who complete the Course will have opportunities for careers in law and legal practice across industries, consulting, banking, and technology firms.

The Course provides you with an interdisciplinary skillset that distinguishes you from other graduates through teaching in computing and areas of law essential to modern practice in finance, banking, corporate law, and technology law. For those interested in pursuing a career as a solicitor or barrister, the Programme gives you hands-on experience, meaningful exposure to key industry employers and a competitive advantage in securing a training contract.

Modules

The module introduces software development concepts and practices in a scaffolding manner enabling students to progressively develop their knowledge. This will be reinforced by interwoven practical lab sessions and tutorial workshops which will focus on and enhance all the necessary practical skills: problem solving, software design, programming skills and software testing to the high level of competence required by industry. The module is also intended to equip students with the knowledge, skills and habits that enable them to function as autonomous, accountable IT professionals.
