Concept

This programme, built on the expertise of both the Centre for Intellectual Property Rights (CIR) and the Interdisciplinary Centre for Law & ICT (ICRI) of KU Leuven, provides an in-depth study of European IP, ICT and Media Law. The ICT and media sector is a rapidly evolving and highly complex sector, influenced by technological, economic and sociological developments. In this sector, existing legal frameworks are continuously challenged, traditional legal concepts and principles need to be reinterpreted and an insight into other – connected – disciplines is vital to function at a high level. The course intends to address the increasing demand for qualified legal practitioners in the IP, ICT and media sector. To achieve this objective students will be offered a comprehensive study of European IP law, IT law and Media and Communications law, with a specific focus on relevant interdisciplinary perspectives (technology; economy; socio-political, cultural and media studies), and a number of practical skills that are of particular importance in this sector. To answer the need for specialised training, the faculty is drawn from a wide array of academics, government officials, civil servants from such institutions as the European Commission and national regulatory authorities, as well as leading practitioners. In this way, the programme offers academic quality and added value both to graduate students wishing to cap their curriculum, and to practitioners in search of top-quality, cutting-edge expertise.

Studying in the capital of Europe

The LLM in Intellectual Property Rights and ICT Law is jointly organised by two universities in Belgium: HUB and KU Leuven. The classes are taught at the Brussels campus.
Hogeschool-Universiteit Brussel (HUB) is the result of a merger between three Brussels-based university colleges and one university. As such, it has become a multifaceted institute of higher education. With over 50 years of accumulated experience, HUB belongs to the leading educational institutes in Europe. HUB represents quality, professionally oriented education and academic training in Brussels, the political and economic heart of the European Union. HUB’s mission statement emphasizes internationalization as one of its top priorities. HUB encourages, establishes and maintains academic and professional relations with people, institutes, organizations and research centres of different countries and cultural backgrounds.
HUB is located in several campuses in Brussels, surrounded by many European and international organisations. Brussels truly is ‘the capital of Europe’, hosting meetings and sessions of the European Commission, the European Parliament, NATO and many diplomatic missions and international organizations. In addition the many international firms and financial institutions that have their HQ in Brussels make the city one of the world’s biggest financial markets.

Situated in the heart of Western Europe, KU Leuven has been a centre of learning for nearly six centuries. Today, it is Belgium's largest university. Founded in 1425, it is one of the oldest and most renowned universities in Europe. This rich history of nearly six hundred years has provided KU Leuven with its own dynamic international dimension. Today, international co-operation is regarded as essential for a modern university. Top-level research is judged according to international standards and implies interaction, co-operation, and exchange, both of researchers and results. As such, KU Leuven is a charter member of the League of European Research Universities, and European surveys rank KU Leuven among the top ten European universities in terms of its scholarly output. Likewise with regard to teaching, several quality surveys demonstrate that KU Leuven stands on par with internationally respected institutions in a large number of fields.This academic reputation attracts students from all over the world.
