Course content

The LLM in Transnational Dispute Resolution allows you to develop advanced knowledge of the procedural and substantive law and the rules that govern the settlement of international and transnational disputes. As such, the course focuses on the contemporary rules, procedures and practices of international courts and tribunals. This includes the International Court of Justice, interstate and mixed arbitration tribunals, as well as investment dispute resolution mechanisms such as the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), or World Trade Organization (WTO). The course also deals with mechanisms allowing the settlement of disputes which are of a hybrid nature - i.e. partly international and partly domestic.
