Module Examination Digital Law

About the examination

Module 7 - Digital Law of the LL.B. programme in International Legal Studies provides you with knowledge on issues related to digitalisation and law. On the one hand, the influence of digitalisation on the legal system itself is examined (legal tech). On the other hand, the module provides an introduction to the regulation of digital technologies (IT law).

The module is concluded by a written examination comprising 8 ECTS credits.

A lecture and an exercise serve to prepare students for the exam (see below).

The requirement for the exam for students of the LL.B. programme in International Legal Studies is the completion of the introductory and orientation period (StEOP). According to the recommended study path for the degree programme, you should complete this examination in the 3rd semester. However, if you fulfil the requirements, you can take the examination already before this semester or later.
