IT law LLM

Postby Kazi » Mon Nov 17, 2014 10:25 am

Hi everyone,

I am an international student looking for an LLM in IT Law or similar. I found several LLMs in IP law, but that's not exactly what I'm looking for. This NYU LLM program is a good example: http://www.law.nyu.edu/llmjsd/competiti ... rmationlaw

Something more related to new technologies, internet, cloud computing, antitrust, and IP, obviously.

Suggestions and ideas are most welcome.

Thanks!
K.

I suspect you may get the best results looking for a law school that offers the courses you want/has faculty who work in that area, and getting a general LLM that you sort of "customize" into an IT LLM, because I doubt you're going to find anything more specialized in the field that isn't an IP LLM.

Thank you A. Nony Mouse, this makes sense. I'll look in that direction.

A big school with a big LLM class is probably what you need. I am partial to Georgetown. I know one German LLM student who focused on IP and had a very good experience.

there were some llms at Harvard that basically did this. they were basically TAs for lessig/zittrain. dunno if it's an actual program or if they rolled their own thing
