Course summary

This postgraduate programme in mediation and conflict resolution provides a thorough, practical and exciting introduction to this developing area. Still the only course of its kind in the UK, the programme is rigorous and multidisciplinary, exposing you to a wide range of approaches as well as being taught by experts from across the UK. In response to popular demand, you can graduate with either an LLM or MSc. Students whose dissertations deal with significant legal or justice questions receive recognition via an LLM. Those who take a social science or empirical approach will graduate with an MSc. You can gain real-world experience through our innovative Mediation Clinic.

Assessment

There are normally two assessments for each class – a practical and written assessment.

Careers

Many students take their qualification into their existing professions, for example law, human resources, construction, education, management, social work and trade unions. A number of large law firms now have dispute resolution departments. Legal practitioners find the qualification a useful addition to their CV. HR managers who have taken the course report regular use of their mediation skills. Managers and social workers say they use them daily. Former students are now working in community, homelessness and family mediation. Others have integrated mediation into their business offering.
