Information society is gradually replacing industrial society. As a result, new and important issues are emerging for which our laws are not optimally adapted.
The Research Master's in Information Law provides ambitious
students with the legal skills that will enable them to tackle the complex legal issues that arise in an information society, both from a scientific and a practical perspective.
The programme offers outstanding students, who demonstrate an interest in scientific research in the field of information law, the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of subjects relevant to information law. At the same time, students are trained in their research skills. During their entire two-year programme, the Research Master's students are 'embedded' in the Institute for Information Law (IViR) and participate in on-going research
projects, workshops, Institute talks, symposia and conferences.

The Research Master Information Law has two compulsory core subjects : Theory and Practice of Information Law and Theory and Practice of Intellectual Property. In addition, the programme includes a number of elective courses based on the core subjects , research training assignments and training in research skills. The course is completed with the composition of a thesis.
The programme is designed for highly talented students with a special interest in conducting research in this particular area. This is an ideal programme for students who aspire to a career as researchers within or outside of a university context. Even if you're more interested in a career outside of university research, you will acquire the skills required to meet the high demands of, e.g. ministries, courts, national and intergovernmental organisations and law firms.
