The context: tomorrow’s law, today

As the second decade of the 21st century dawns, the era of globalization and digitalization is alive and well. It’s digital companies like Google, Amazon, and Facebook that lead the way and call the shots. A downpour of technology has turned businesses on their heads, and caught in this thunderstorm is the legal sector. It is against this backdrop that modern companies have started to demand a totally new skill set from lawyers.

That’s where the Master in Legal Tech comes in.

In today’s current legal environment, legal services are no longer limited to law firms or consulting agencies. We are surrounded by new, up-and-coming legal organizations, such as Legal Tech companies and ALSPs, which require tech-savvy and holistic lawyers and entrepreneurs. A traditional legal education will no longer help you stand out from the crowd. In response to this, our Master in Legal Tech has been designed to equip the legal professionals of tomorrow with the future-forward skills, knowledge and mindset necessary to support and lead tech companies in the increasingly complex and dynamic digital economy and differentiate themselves from the rest, securing the competitive edge they need to thrive in an increasingly demanding job market.
