Course summary

Our International and Commercial Dispute Resolution Law LLM (ICDRL) is for anyone wishing to demonstrate a commitment to contentious law in public and private international and commercial legal contexts. The taught part of the course 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 (ICL) course which is primarily concerned with non-contentious aspects of commerce (ICL modules include competition law, trade and insurance). Class sizes are, in general, quite small, and you'll be able to mix with students on other Master's 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's centrally concerned with law and other rules (international, transnational and commercial) which are applicable in adjudication and also in the other dispute resolution processes. In addition to the taught modules, the Dissertation module gives you the opportunity to develop a specialist knowledge of a small area of the field, which might lead to a publishable article.
