Queen Mary University of London

Course Introduction

The LLM in Computer and Communications Law by Distance Learning programme is one of a suite of online learning programmes that can lead to the award of a Queen Mary University of London, Postgraduate Certificate, Diploma or LLM in Computer and Communications Law.

The programme draws on our established teaching and research expertise in IT law, e'commerce law, communications law, computer law and media law.

Law as a subject is particularly suitable for online learning in that it is primarily text'based, so delivery of teaching materials is not restricted by bandwidth limitations. Most of the relevant materials for computer and communications law are available in digital format from databases such as Lexis and Westlaw to which you gain access through your Queen Mary student account.

Your e'learning experience is enhanced by tutorials using discussion boards, blog postings and live chat for class discussions and question and answer sessions. We have designed the course to allow as much interaction and feedback between students and tutors as possible. Your understanding will be deepened by discussing your reading with fellow students and your course tutor and carrying out short tasks related to the course. We also use audio and audio'visual presentations. Completion of the LLM takes from two to six years, part'time and is tailored for the needs of busy practitioners or other lawyers who would like to obtain specialist knowledge in the computer and communications law field.
