Degree in Computer Technology Law?

By XpertDragon ·
I was wondering if someone could help me with an advanced degree question/topic. I currently have a 4-year bachelors computer systems related degree.

I am interested in changing gears and heading into law enforcement as it would be related to the computer field, and legal aspects that would be a part of a "law" oriented career centered around computer systems. I have done a few searches, but I am unable to find many law degrees that also wrap technology into them. Does such a degree program exist, and if so, where can it be found? I am especially interested in online degree programs.

In summarization, this would be an advanced degree related to computers and law and law enforcemnt, so that hopefully someone would be a better I.T. candidate for the FBI, CIA, etc.

Thank you.

Big difference

Between a "Lawyer" and an enforecment arm.

Much of computer law is wrapped up in copyright and patent law. Your career path would be in large law firms working for large corporate clients.

If you want law enforcement - take some classes in general law, law enforcement, and any course you can find on computer auditing/forensics etc.
