Course content

The construction industry increasingly recognises the importance of resolving disputes efficiently and quickly in order to maintain commercial relationships and keep cash flowing within the industry. If you are a professional working in construction, law or a related field, this course will develop your ability to manage disputes efficiently and even to resolve them.

Prominent areas of study will include Principles of Construction Law, Approaches to Dispute Resolution (including arbitration, adjudication and mediation), and Construction Claims.

The structure and content of our teaching meets the examination requirements of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators on each of its pathways to membership - Arbitration, International Arbitration and Construction Adjudication - from Associate level through to Fellowship level.

This course offers two routes depending on your professional background and qualifications. The MSc is ideal if you come from a surveying and construction background, while the LLM is specifically aimed at those who already hold an LLB degree (or equivalent qualification).
