Property and Technology


There are no classes currently available for registration.


This short course, Property and Technology, offers you opportunities for reflection on the relationship between property and technology as well as providing the tools to develop a detailed understanding of various property regimes, such as land, personal property, intellectual property and related rights, and new technologies, such as biotechnology, digital technology and artificial intelligence.

During our sessions on this course we will use legal materials, including cases, legislation and doctrine, as archives that help trace the processes through which different subject matters have been conceived, imagined and contested.

This postgraduate-level course is ideal if you have a professional or personal interest in the field of law. You will also find it of particular interest if you wish to enhance your career through Continuing Professional Development in this area. 

This course is assessed by a 4000-word summative essay (95%) and online participation in group work and discussion (5%).
