Students in the Research Master's in Information Law have a variety of unique opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.
The programme consists of 120 ECTS credits. This includes two compulsory ‘theory and practice’ courses covering Information Law and Intellectual Property as well as a number of elective courses. At the beginning of their second year, students have the opportunity to study abroad. Students complete the programme by researching and writing an original master’s thesis.
The UvA Course Catalogue lists all the courses available this year.
Next year, the range of courses on offer may look somewhat different.
Over the course of the Research Master’s programme, students take part in ongoing research projects and learn about the daily affairs of the Institute for Information Law (IViR). Students participate in workshops, symposia and conferences, and have access to work space in the IViR, where they frequently interact with institute researchers and staff.
In the beginning of their second year, students have the opportunity to specialise their studies at a foreign law school in Europe, the United States or elsewhere. The location will depend on the individual student’s interests and the possibilities offered by the partner institution.
Students conclude the Research Master’s programme with an in-depth thesis in the field of Information Law.
