The objective of the Master Droit privé parcours Droit du numérique is to train high-level lawyers with an in-depth understanding of the regulatory environment and the ability to guide the company and its stakeholders in a coherent and competitive strategy, anticipating risks through comprehension and compliance with legal obligations.

The second year of master allows students to deepen the fundamentals of digital law (personal data law, e-commerce law, intellectual property law…) but also to understand the implications of digital technology on more traditional branches of law (labour law, taxation, criminal law…) and to open up to new fields (digital economy, legaltech, computer science…), without forgetting the major emphasis on English.

These teachings are delivered by academics and legal professionals.
