I am currently pursuing a LL.M in Information, Technology and the Law at Edinburgh University. Hopefully, this degree will allow me to assist my organization in understanding the inherent complexities of international information law, as well as developing sustainable platforms for continued growth.

One thought on “LL.M at the University of Edinburgh”
  1. Hi Michael,

    Just found your blog on Google and I think it’s excellent you are pursuing those options. We don’t have enough tech-savvy lawyers these days and it’ll be good when people like you or me reach the end of our courses and are able to fully understand cases that involve complex technologies.

    I’ll be keeping my eyes on this blog 🙂
