About

The course is intended for anyone wishing to demonstrate a commitment to contentious law in international and commercial legal contexts. The taught part of the programme includes modules which reflect the three main forms of dispute resolution process, namely adjudication (litigation and arbitration), alternative dispute resolution (ADR – principally mediation), and negotiation.
In addition to taught modules, there is also the dissertation module which provides an opportunity for developing a specialist knowledge of a small area of the field, which might lead to a publishable article.

The range of individuals who can benefit from this course include: paralegals and newly qualified practitioners who need to fill in the gaps left by their existing qualifications and experience to date; more experienced practitioners such as potential judges, arbitrators, and mediators; and other professionals who need to have advanced appreciation of international and commercial law, such as civil servants, diplomats, directors, insurers, journalists, linguists, and managers.

The course is also ideal if you want to progress towards a PhD programme. The course will also be beneficial for you if you are taking a gap year between career stages, and if you are from continental European Union or other countries and want to improve your English for career purposes.
