The Institute's associates are involved in many different types of educational schemes including programmes that are directed towards both lawyers and non-lawyers, students and qualified professionals as well as Swedes and internationals.
Within the Swedish law programme students are obliged to study six weeks of law and informatics during their first year of study. One of the compulsory courses is directed towards legal information retrieval. An even more comprehensive course addresses e-government and e-business. In addition to these, other courses on specialised topics are offered.
Since 1999 a one year Masters programme in Law and Information Technology has attracted lawyers from all over the world. The present curriculum comprises four courses ranging from traditional IT Law to Development and Management of Information Systems in a Legal Perspective. The students are required to pass written examinations and write two theses during the course of the Programme. Seminars, practical assignments, weekly discussions and so called “In Real Life Experiences” aim at providing the students with skills necessary for their future work as either practitioners or researchers in the chosen field. Issues of practical interest are interwoven with scholarly treatment of legal problems.
