University of Westminster, London has opted into the TEF and received a Bronze award.
The course is intended for anyone wishing to demonstrate a commitment to contentious law in public and private international and commercial legal contexts. The taught part of the programme includes modules which reflect the three main forms of dispute resolution process, namely adjudication (litigation and arbitration), alternative dispute resolution (ADR – principally mediation), and negotiation. This course differs from the International Commercial Law LLM course which is primarily concerned with non-contentious aspects of commerce (modules include competition law, trade, and insurance). Class sizes are, in general, quite small, and you will be able to mix with students on other Masters courses at Westminster Law School. The course provides an opportunity for in-depth study of the substantive and procedural issues involved in the field, and also the acquisition of skills involved in some of the processes. It is centrally concerned with law and other rules (international and commercial) which are applicable in adjudication and also in the other dispute resolution processes. In addition to taught modules, there is also the Dissertation module which provides an opportunity for developing a specialist knowledge of a small area of the field, which might lead to a publishable article.
Applicants should have a minimum of a lower second class honours degree (2:2). Applicants without the standard qualifications but with significant professional experience in the relevant field or with related professional qualifications may be considered. If your first language is not English you should have an IELTS 6.5 with at least 6.0 in writing. One academic reference is required.
