Course summary

This specialism offers a rigorous and practical program of study into the process of civil litigation and alternative forms of dispute resolution including arbitration and mediation.

Who is it for?

The Civil Litigation and Dispute Resolution LLM degree should interest and benefit a broad range of students.

If you are already professionally qualified having taken the Bar Professional Vocational Studies (BVS) or Legal Practice Course (LPC) it will develop your understanding of practice and enhance your career.

If you have legal qualifications in another jurisdiction it will provide understanding of legal process in England. You can enrol in the course straight after a law degree, although some experience of legal practice is an advantage.

Objectives:

This Specialist Master of Laws (LLM) in Civil Litigation and Dispute Resolution programme provides a unique opportunity to enhance the development of a career in legal professional practice as a barrister, solicitor or other qualified legal practitioner.

The Masters course investigates the ways in which civil litigation can be managed strategically and effectively, and provides a practice-focused understanding of mediation and arbitration as alternative ways of resolving a dispute, both of which are becoming increasingly important to commercial and non-commercial practice alike.

This innovative specialist Masters degree is designed to provide a sound understanding of the rules under which litigation, arbitration and mediation operate, based on current scholarship including areas such as procedure, evidence and ethics.

Career prospects:

It is an important objective of this course to assist individual students who wish to build effective careers in managing and conducting civil cases, whether through litigation, arbitration, negotiation or mediation.

With so much competition for those seeking to enter and develop a career in the legal profession, this Master of Laws (LLM) is designed to provide a depth of understanding and a range of skills that can make a real difference in building your career.

As a graduate of this specialist Master of Laws (LLM) programme you will be well placed to pursue careers in this area of law in private practice, in-house in a law firm, policy and government, non-governmental organisations and a wide range of non-legal careers in litigation and dispute resolution.
