ITM stands for Information, Telecommunications and Media Law. The field of law has a long tradition in Münster, starting in 1997 with the ITM Institute of the University of Münster. The institute was based in the Faculty of Law until it moved to the new premises at the Leonardo Campus. In civil law, Professor Dr Thomas Hoeren has built up a broad network into computer science, the arts and economics in close connection with the private sector and other foreign research institutions. Since then, more than 150 researchers have been awarded doctorates; „ITMers“ are now working in a variety of jobs in administration, business, the legal profession and even as university lecturers again..
