Law and Information Systems - Master's Programme

Orientation and Goals

This postgraduate and part-time Master's programme in Law and Information Systems (LL.M.) addresses the increasing demand for lawyers, business economists and computer scientists who are experts in the field of IT law in its broadest sense. Business enterprises as well as law firms are interested in employees who are trained in this field, which is rarely taught in higher education law programmes.

This Master's programme in Law and Information Systems meets this demand and aims to develop practical solutions with the support of proven experts. As a cross-sectional legal matter combining public law, civil law and criminal law, the study programme is particularly attractive for students with an affinity for information processing and telecommunications technology. IT law encompasses the classic legal areas of telecommunications and media law, copyright and industrial property rights, e-commerce law, and internet law. Alternatively, eGovernment, (computer) criminal law, data protection law, and law of new technologies can be chosen.

Foreign Language Skills

Admission to a degree programme at the University of Oldenburg is subject to sufficient proficiency in the German language:
