Course content

The Dispute Resolution LLM gives you a detailed understanding of the law on dispute resolution, covering advocacy, arbitration, conciliation, mediation, negotiation and adjudication. You will have the opportunity to look closely at family mediation and conflict, assess the merits of different dispute resolution methods, examine case studies and practice your advocacy skills.

Kingston University's LLM courses allow you to specialise and tailor your degree to a topic of your choice, while also giving you the flexibility to take modules on other subjects, making it flexible and easy to adapt to your interests and career goals.

You will complete work worth 180 credits by studying four 30-credit modules and one 60-credit dissertation module.

In addition to the Law School's team of highly skilled academics, courses are taught by experienced practitioners, and many of our lecturing staff combine teaching with legal practice. This helps to ensure that the courses are constantly refreshed with the latest industry thinking and practice, and provides you with the opportunity to mix with people who can provide hands-on experience and insight into their area of legal work.

Kingston Law School has strong links with The Law Society, the professional body that represents practising solicitors in England and Wales.
