Concept

This programme, built on the expertise of the KU Leuven Centre for IT & IP Law 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.
