The Master’s in Legal Issues, Crime and Security of Information Technologies, offered jointly by HEC Lausanne and the Faculty of Law, Criminal Justice and Public Administration (FDCA), uses a cross-disciplinary approach to offer a cutting-edge program aimed at understanding the problems raised by information technologies, in legal, IT and criminal terms.

The course is aimed at students who have already completed a basic program in law, forensic science, economics or business computing. It allows students to further their basic knowledge, while gaining additional insights based on an interdisciplinary approach. Successful students are awarded a Master of Law (MLaw).

The program requires students to develop skills in several areas, some of which may be unfamiliar to them at the start of the course. This is a varied and stimulating program, which equips them to deal with a range of complex problems, either in a field close to their initial area of expertise or by drawing on the skills they have acquired in one of the other areas studied.

At a time when digitization is gaining ground in all professional sectors, the skills acquired through the Master’s in Legal Issues, Crime and Security of Information Technologies are an advantage in the labor market and respond to a clearly identified need in both private businesses and the administrative authorities. Our graduates are regularly offered employment in a variety of sectors, including forensic services, data protection, audit firms, IT security businesses, administration, the judiciary, law firms, scientific research, and even communications or diplomacy.

The quality of the program owes a great deal to its teaching staff, who range from professors who may also be active in other programs at UNIL, to well-established practitioners in their respective fields, who give lectures and help students to establish even more links between theory and practice. It also relies heavily on its students, who come from a variety of backgrounds, bring a willingness to share their experiences and have plenty to contribute.

We wish you every enjoyment and success in your university studies!
