Course content

The LLM Transnational Dispute Resolution allows you to develop advanced knowledge of the rules and procedures along which international and transnational disputes are settled.

The course focuses on the contemporary rules, procedures and practices of international courts and tribunals, including the International Court of Justice, interstate and mixed arbitration tribunals, investment dispute resolution mechanisms like International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), or World Trade Organisation (WTO) dispute settlement mechanisms. It also deals with mechanisms allowing the settlement of disputes which are of a hybrid nature, partly international, partly domestic.

You will gain a command of the techniques of argumentation before domestic, regional and international tribunals, as well as critical tools to understand, apprehend and analyse the politics and the dynamics of international dispute resolution mechanisms.
