What will I learn?

Our LLMs from our our new Master's in Law suite of programmes are designed for law and non-law graduates who want to explore the practical application of a particular, specialist area of the law. Study face to face or online.

Course Details
The LLM International Arbitration will allow you to explore issues surrounding International Arbitration, providing the substantive knowledge needed in order to enhance your practice. You will examine international commercial arbitration and international investment arbitration, covering areas such as the legal framework of international commercial arbitration; the jurisdiction of arbitration tribunals and the enforcement of arbitral awards.

When you study the LLM International Arbitration with us you will:

  • Be taught by subject matter experts, former and current practitioners and research and teaching focused academics
  • Focus on legal practice, not just theory
  • Benefit from strategic partnerships with firms, regulators and accreditation bodies
  • Learn about Legal Technology by selecting to study modules in legal technology
  • Improve your employability by gaining important transferable skills and mapping your career with our careers team

The award-linked module for this programme (International Arbitration) will cover areas such as sources of arbitration law, arbitration agreements, enforcement and procedural issues in international arbitration and arbitral awards. The aim of this module is to put international arbitration law into context, enabling you to learn how to apply complex theoretical concepts to real world client situations.

In addition to a general induction to the programme, there is a two-week induction covering the Key Principles of the English Legal System. This is compulsory for non-law students, but also open to students wanting a refresher in the fundamentals of the law of England and Wales. This would be useful for any student who has taken a considerable break from legal education.

Assessment
Modules are assessed by a three hour unseen written examination or 4,500 word coursework assignment.

Attendance at one of our UK campuses (or an approved overseas centre by prior arrangement) is required for all examinations, including for online study.

The default campus location for online study is London.
