LLM in Transnational Arbitration and Dispute Settlement
Director: Diego P. Fernández Arroyo
The LLM in Transnational Arbitration & Dispute Settlement is a one-year, intensive and full-time programme, entirely taught in English. This programme offers to legal professionals an extensive training in theoretical and practical aspects of arbitration and dispute settlement. This program offers an insight into litigation before domestic courts, recourse to mediation and online dispute settlement. Ultimately, it does not exclusively focus on “procedural” tools governing dispute settlement. “Substantial” lectures offer an insight into public international law, international contracts law, private international law, energy law, international investment law and the protection of human rights. Students in the programme (20-25 maximum each year) are offered a series of small-group courses to further intellectual and professional exchange, workshops entirely taught in law ﬁrms and at the ICC International Court of Arbitration, conferences, internships, and participation in international moots. All in all the LLM offers a unique opportunity to immerse in the transnational arbitration network. The combination of different kinds of courses adequately prepares students to act before the extraordinary variety of tribunals and courts that exist in the world today. The high-level education received during the programme enables students to be extremely competitive to get positions in international law ﬁrms, arbitration institutions and international organisations.
