Course summary

Overview

Prepare yourself for the future of international dispute resolution in a global economy. A thorough knowledge of national laws and procedures is no longer sufficient to competently counsel clients in the globalised world of the 21 Century. As technology, trade and transportation have reduced the signi?cance of borders, trans-frontier activity has become part of our daily routine. International and European law have developed dynamically to catch up with this quickly changing world and to regulate cross-border activities that national law can rarely govern efficiently. The International Dispute Resolution LLM, prepares you for a career in the challenging and exciting ?eld of international dispute resolution. It provides you with a solid foundation in all relevant areas including both private and public international means of dispute resolution and allows you to specialise in the ?elds of your choice. The faculty combines both King’s award- winning academics and some of the world’s leading practitioners.

Course detail

Students have a wide range of options of specialised fields of international dispute resolution, ranging from modules on international commercial arbitration and international investment arbitration exclusively taught by some of the world’s leading barristers, human rights law and litigation, international investment law as well as policy, negotiation, transnational litigation and world trade law. This LLM prepares students for a career in the challenging and exciting field of international dispute resolution. It provides them with a solid foundation in all relevant areas including both private and public international means of dispute resolution and allows them to specialise in the fields of their choice.
