Graduate Certificate of New Technologies Law
Taught entirely online, the ANU Graduate Certificate of New Technologies Law gives you the skills and knowledge to accelerate your career. Understand the application - and evolution - of the law in the digital era.
This program is ideal for those who have completed a Bachelor’s degree in another discipline and wish to develop their knowledge of Australian and international legal systems and how laws are created, interpreted and applied to new technologies.
The Graduate Certificate of New Technologies Law also provides a pathway to the ANU Master of Laws (LLM) for graduates from non-cognate disciplines upon completion of Law and Legal Institutions (LAWS8586).
ANU Ninian Stephen Cyber Law Program
Delivered in partnership with the Menzies Foundation, the ANU Ninian Stephen Cyber Law Program is a professional development course for commercial legal practitioners that aims to increase their baseline literacy in cyber law with a focus on data and privacy.
This course covers contemporary, global cyber law challenges with significant transnational legal components while also exploring national legal frameworks and issues. The course provides detailed insights into privacy and data protection frameworks and emerging trends while also focusing on the challenges associated with contracting for IT services, exploring the legal issues stemming from the use of ‘smart’ contracts, assessing the difficult questions raised by our reliance on cloud computing services, and outlining the contemporary policy debates being discussed in Australia today.
Professional Development Courses
We offer a range of short-term professional development courses with a focus on law and technology. This allows you to study a single subject without having to apply for a full postgraduate degree.
Short-term professional development courses can enable you to update or refresh your knowledge, expand your skillset, focus on a specialised area of law relating to your current role or gain new knowledge and skills to prepare you for a new role.
All these courses are currently delivered online due to COVID-19 restrictions. Some of our courses include:
- Artificial Intelligence, Law & Society
- Cyber Warfare Law
