The Centre for Internet Law and Policy
The centre directed by Lilian Edwards, Professor of E-Governance, was re-launched in 2011 with the intention of bringing together world leading expertise, research and teaching across the entire field of digital law and policy.
Home of the UK’s first Masters in Information Technology since 1991, the Centre has a global brand for excellence in, especially, telecoms law, e-commerce, online privacy law and Internet governance. We have a special commitment to interdisciplinary work, and engage not just with lawyers and legal institutions but also the worlds of technology, politics, economics, criminology and sociology. We have a special interest in human rights online and digital rights civil society. As well as our well-known LLM in Internet Law and Policy (available face to face or by distance learning), we welcome applications for PhD studies to join our growing research community.
The Centre staff publish and lecture widely (including editing the leading textbook Law and the Internet now in its third edition and have been consulted by many leading international organisations and corporations including WIPO, ICANN, the European Commission, the European Parliament , the Internet Governance Forum, the OECD and Google, McAfee and Symantec. “
