The University of Southampton
Interdisciplinary Centre for Law, Internet and Culture (iCLIC)


We are a research-led institution and are proud to be part of the University’s thriving postgraduate community that operates right across the campus.

The 2008 Research Assessment Exercise confirmed that 95 per cent of our research output was of international quality, a percentage achieved by just ten other UK law schools and ILAWS has an excellent reputation for teaching the next generation of IT lawyers. iCLIC's members are in the process of creating a new LLM in the field with a solid interdisciplinary grounding built into it.
