"My experience of the LL.M in Law, Governance and Technology at NUI Galway has been very positive. I opted to take the LL.M due to the wide variety of modules offered, most of which I did not have an opportunity to encounter during my LL.B studies, due to subject entry requirements for the Solicitors’ and Bar examinations. 

The learning environment provided is very productive and fosters a focus on collaborative learning and interaction. The learning process is supplemented by a myriad of guest speakers, dealing with a wide variety of legal topics.

The lecturers attached to the programme are particularly helpful, providing guidance and advice at every stage of the learning and assessment process. 

I would recommend the LL.M in Law, Governance and Technology without reservation, to any law graduate. The related areas of law, technology and governance are central to a holistic understanding of complex legal issues which is necessary for any potential legal practitioner or researcher."

I had always been interested in the interaction of science and technology with law and this programme offers an opportunity to analyse this area. I was also attracted to the programme as the modules offered examine up and coming areas of law and regulation, issues that are truly relevant to modern society. In particular I enjoyed the Law, Governance and Enterprise module of the course in which a range of guest speakers visited the class from a variety of backgrounds and areas which gave us a broader understanding of the application of law in practice. The LLM trip to the cyberspace conference in Brno, Czech Republic was also very enjoyable and gave us useful pointers when it came to organising our own LLM conference in NUIG. 

I would wholeheartedly recommend the programme to potential applicants as it is extremely interesting and worthwhile. The course offers a wide variety of modules which allow applicants to chose whether to specialise in regulatory, commercial, science and technology based or governance aspects of law to name but a few. 

Furthermore, the course is examined solely through research assignments and presentations which enables students to really develop writing and analytical skills. Lecturers provide thorough feedback to students on assignments submitted which enables you to see precisely where written skills may need improvement. Students are encouraged to publish their research and the LLM class organise a conference towards the end of the year which is an excellent experience.” (Aisling McMahon)
