Once the Master’s Thesis Law and Technology course is completed, the student is able to:
- Autonomously formulate an academic research question in relation to law and technology.
- Construct a research project and to answer the research question adequately.
- Collect, organise, analyse, correlate, and assess information relevant to the research question.
- Gain insights into different research methods and the types of research design
- Substantiate the answers found and propose defensible solutions (if necessary).
- Present, in writing, the design, the performance and the results of the research in a clear and systematic manner.
Important Note: The exact schedule for lectures will be provided through Blackboard and students will receive more information during the introduction meeting. Please note that there is a blackboard page for this course.
Attending this course is mandatory.
The Master Law & Technology is concluded with a thesis. In their thesis, the students have to prove that they are able to select relevant information, lucidly describe and analyse relevant issues and questions, and pose creative solutions thereto based on the weighing of pertinent arguments and interests. The Master’s degree will be obtained after a public defense of the Master’s thesis. By following the trajectory, students are supported in working on their thesis in a structured manner, in order to finish it on time. Obligatory lectures with assignments are offered to develop and improve the students' ability to formulate a strong research question, to structure an introduction, to choose and report methodology, and to write a discussion. Students starting in September follow the trajectory until June of the following year. Students starting in January follow the trajectory until December of the same year. (Double Degree Master students are the notable exception for the deadline concerning the thesis. They have a heavier workload for their thesis and therefore a more extensive timetable).
