New technologies, such as biotechnology, nanotechnology and information technology, bring new opportunities and risks. They put our abilities and capacities for adequate regulation to the test in an impressive way. Are you one of the bright and creative law students who is eager to accept this challenge? Emerging new technologies are pervasively transforming society.

The master's programme of Law and Technology provides the cutting-edge, multidisciplinary knowledge on technology, law, and society needed for answering these questions.
