Law of Information and Communication Technologies (czech)
The four-year doctoral programme "Law of Information and Communication Technologies" gives students the opportunity to comprehensively understand the regulatory context of the development and practical deployment of advanced information and communication technologies. In addition, the students have the opportunity to acquire a unique methodological instrumentarium to work with law as an information system (i.e. a system of formal phenomenal signs aimed at organizing society). Thus, the study leads to a thorough understanding of the basic structural elements and the application layer of regulatory phenomena related to information and communication technologies (e.g. information privacy, cyber security, etc.) and at the same time gives the possibility of a non-conformist view of law by the method of so-called virtualization.
The systematic composition of the profile courses combined with the required publications and practical colloquia will prepare students to deal practically with highly difficult interpretive or legislative issues of ICT regulation, while providing them with the tools and intellectual motivation to creatively apply information law methodology to standard legal situations.
A successful graduate is able to:
- understand law as an information system;
- creatively use the method of virtualization in law;
- independently solve highly difficult legislative and interpretative problems of ICT law;
- understand and develop the essence of regulatory phenomena of ICT law;
- successfully formulate and argue complex interpretive conclusions regarding regulatory phenomena of ICT law before domestic and international professional audiences.
Application deadline: 15 May 2024
