Information Law (Research Master's)

The Information Law Research Master's courses are usually given by staff of the Institute for Information Law (IViR), a leading research institute in its field.

The Institute for Information Law (IViR) examines the legal aspects related to the production, storage and distribution of information. Information is an important part of modern society. It not only plays a major role in the daily lives of citizens, but the economic stakes in information are also high. Knowledge is valuable and there is a lot of money in the information industry.

The Research Master’s programme focuses on two central questions:

  1. What are the fundamental rights that are shaping the information process?
    This question is about freedom of communications, privacy and intellectual property.
  2. What are the rules of the information market?
    This involves research in the areas of media law, post and telecommunications law as well as competition law.

Information Law also deals with fundamental legal questions arising from social issues with political relevance. IViR’s researchers are therefore regularly involved in the public debate around these matters.
