Digital Law and Technological Innovation

The specialisation in digital law and technological innovation is designed to equip students with the legal knowledge and technical skills needed to navigate the complex ethical, legal and social implications of new technologies.

Students can choose from subjects designed to impart expert knowledge about the regulatory challenges of our times: the expediential growth of artificial intelligence, big data and allied disruptive technologies, such as blockchain and ‘smart contracts’, which affect markets, professional practice and governance.

Law and legal practice are changing rapidly through the effects of new digital technologies on markets, the public sector and society. Melbourne Law School’s new Specialist Certificate in the area of Digital Law and Technological Innovation provides law graduates with contemporary, expert insights and skill development in responding to, and indeed staying ahead of, disruptive innovation.
