Ireland's €50 billion export sector: Apply now for a Diploma in Technology and IP Law

The Diploma in Technology and IP Lawwhich commences on 16 October 2019, will provide a detailed insight into the current framework of laws relating to technology and IP in Ireland.


The tech industry in Ireland is booming. The list of tech giants with operations seems to grow by the year: Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter, Google, Intel, and LinkedIn, to name a few. All have large operational centres in Ireland. As the second-largest exporter of computer and IT services in the world (a €50 billion export sector), it is imperative that that all organisations understand the law relating to technology and intellectual property and that all legal advisers have the requisite knowledge to advise on these matters.


This extended diploma programme is designed to give comprehensive coverage of this dynamic and innovated area and the broad range of legal issues arising from technology and intellectual property developments in this digital age.


Lecturers will chart the latest trends in technology and provide a wide-ranging analysis of issues relating to intellectual property rights, advising on data protection strategies, and managing transactional issues. 

Leading experts will consider the potential liabilities including IP-infringements and defences, domain disputes, e-commerce and consumer regulations, software licencing and data security breaches.

Finally, the law relating to key technology such as the Cloud, nanotechnology, biomedical technology, biometrics, wearable technology, driverless vehicles, Fintech and Blockchain will be examined.
