Course summary

Overview This LLM in International Commercial Dispute Resolution course is all about how the law can assist and facilitate the resolution of international or cross-border commercial disputes and thus world trade. International trade and business have increased significantly over the last few decades, and this has brought a corresponding increase in commercial cross-border disputes, the management and resolution of which is very different from the resolution of purely domestic disputes. Most international law firms have a department dedicated to international dispute resolution and studying this subject is essential, therefore, if you want a career in cross-border dispute resolution or international trade and commerce, or indeed in a trade-related government department. About This Course Study at UEA Law School and You will be joining a School that excels in its dedication to offer intellectually diverse, varied and stimulating postgraduate courses, supported by a wide-ranging selection of subjects or modules taught by leading experts. The School is based in Earlham Hall, a building of significant historical importance, built in 1642 but recently refurbished, where most of the postgraduate LLM teaching takes place – it will therefore be your home for your period of study. On this course, you will learn to think from an international legal perspective and will gain comparative knowledge of various approaches to international commercial dispute resolution. In addition to the core modules of international commercial litigation and international commercial arbitrations, students have a choice to select specialised international commercial dispute resolution modules, such as investment law and arbitration, Sharia Arbitration, and international construction law and dispute resolution. Each year we welcome around 100 postgraduate students from a wide variety of geographical and personal backgrounds, and it is the vibrant and dynamic community they create that completes the student experience. We place significant emphasis on choice, building your confidence, maximising your employability and developing adaptable transferable skills. We believe small group teaching at postgraduate level is important and we aim to keep class sizes low, offering you an unparalleled personal teaching environment with access to our team of international specialists drawn from academia and practice. We also believe practical and careers experience is extremely valuable and we’ve developed a programme of opportunities tailored specifically to the needs of our postgraduate students, including placement opportunities for both UK and overseas students. During your course, you can apply for one of 50 internship placements. You can also attend careers panels, commercial awareness workshops, mock job interviews, our annual Law Careers Fair and many other events organised by the UEA Law School and the Careers Service.
