Course Summary

The LLM in Technology, Media and Telecommunications Law programme explores the legal regimes governing the supply and use of computer and communications technology and those governing key aspects of the media. Through the examination of national law, international law and policy you will learn to analyse complex legal issues arising from technology, media and telecommunications and will examine how the developments in these areas have affected the application of traditional legal principles. You will have the opportunity to analyse the regulation of all key forms of media content and the regulation of the infrastructures via which that content is delivered, including traditional, new and still-developing media.

As a student at Queen Mary, you will play an active part in your acquisition of skills and knowledge. Teaching is by a mixture of formal lectures and small group seminars. The seminars are designed to generate informed discussion around set topics, and may involve student presentations and group exercises as well as open discussion. We take pride in the close and friendly working relationship we have with our students. You will have a team of advisers to support you, including the LLM and Research Directors, your dissertation supervisor and tutors and your module convenors.

We live in a world of unprecedented technological change. The way we live our lives today, with the most essential services being only a click away, has radically transformed our existence as consumers. On the face of it, markets are performing well, as the prices for services have radically decreased – or are even provided for “free”, that is, without monetary payment – through the use of online platforms. We can shop for less money, compare products in real time, search virtually any question, hail a cab on our mobile phone, order any kind of food in an instant – the list is seemingly endless. As such, these technological advancements have transformed consumers’ choice, yet they have simultaneously created new causes of concern about competition in the marketplace and the role of consumers within it.
