The Diploma in Technology and IP Law, which commences on 13 October 2021, will provide a detailed insight into the current framework of laws relating to technology and IP in Ireland.
Ireland has a booming tech market and has become a significant digital hub for Europe. It is of vital importance that all organisations and their people 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 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.
The course offers an insight into the world of cyber-crime and suggests possible corporate risk management strategies that companies can implement. Separately there will be analysis of applicable torts such as defamation and the rights and duties attaching to social media, blogging and internet usage. 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.
