The Master of Law in Legal Issues, Crime and Security of Information Technologies results of a collaboration between the Faculty of Law, Criminal Justice and Public Administration, the Faculty of Business and Economics (HEC Lausanne) and the School of Criminal Justice of the University of Lausanne. Flexible in terms of its architecture, this multidisciplinary course carries on from basic studies in law, economics and forensic science (crime detection techniques).

Course description

With digitalisation extending to all sectors of our environment (public administration, insurance, audiovisual media, banks, publishing, lawyers’ offices), Switzerland once again leads in information technologies. Many jobs are now created by information technologies in the public administration and in the operational activities of multinationals, or in the creation of start-ups.
Moreover, university studies develop, in addition to specific academic skills, a great many transverse skills such as: oral and written communication, critical, analytical and summarising faculties, abilities in research, the learning and transmission of knowledge, independence and the ability to make judgements in the field of specialisation and overlapping areas. This panoply of skills, combined with specialist knowledge acquired in the course of studies, is excellent preparation for a wide range of employment opportunities.
