A Master of Laws (LLM) is a postgraduate degree designed to enhance your academic legal knowledge, particularly focusing on specific areas of interest.
  • Specially designed for law and non-law graduates who want to gain a Master’s qualification in law, this course gives you the opportunity to explore issues surrounding International Arbitration.
  • 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.
  • To help prepare you for your dissertation you’ll study a range of compulsory and further optional Research Methods Training sessions.

Please note that, due to Home Office regulations, students who require a Student Route visa to study with us are not permitted to study online and can only choose face-to-face taught modules.
