Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Specifically aimed at those who already hold an LLB degree or equivalent qualification, this course will enhance your ability to manage and resolve disputes efficiently.

You will study areas including Principles of Construction Law, Approaches to Dispute Resolution (including arbitration, adjudication and mediation), and Construction Claims.

The structure and content of our teaching meets the examination requirements of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators on each of its pathways to membership - Arbitration, International Arbitration and Construction Adjudication - from Associate level through to Fellowship level.

We also offer an MSc version of this course, ideal if you come from a surveying or construction background.

LLM Construction Law & Dispute Resolution

Your LLB degree will provide you with exemption from Law of Obligations. You will study the five core modules listed, plus the Dissertation, and you will also select two option modules from the list.

MSc Construction Law & Dispute Resolution

You will study all the core modules listed, with the exception of the Dissertation, and two additional core modules - Law of Obligations and Professional Research. You will also choose two option modules from the list below.

Delivered online, this course allows you to fit your studies around your working life, while gaining the skills to progress your legal career. You will be able to access the same support as students who study on campus, including the advice of our academic staff and Student Wellbeing Team, and your qualification will be of equal value to one obtained by studying on campus.

This advanced study in the specific field of construction will prepare you to deal with the proliferation of contracts, conflict and disputes that arise in the industry, and your learning will be supported by experts in the field, including construction solicitors, barristers, arbitrators, adjudicators and mediators. The course also has links with the Society of Construction Law.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
