The Transnational Arbitration and Dispute Settlement programme taught at Sciences Po will cover other mechanisms of international dispute settlement. These include judicial and non-judicial means of dispute resolution such as litigation before the International Court of Justice, at the World Trade Organization (Panel and Appellate Body), Human Rights Litigation (e.g. European or American framework).
In addition, the program will offer an insight into litigation before domestic courts, recourse to mediation and online dispute settlement. Ultimately, the program will not exclusively focus on "procedural" tools governing dispute settlement. "Substantial" lectures will offer an insight into public international law, international contracts law, private international law, energy law, international investment law and the protection of human rights. The combination of these "procedural" and "substantial" insights will adequately prepare students to act before the extraordinary variety of tribunals and courts that exist in the world today.
Students in the program (20-25 maximum each year) will be offered a series of small-group courses (intensive mandatory classes as well as elective courses) to further intellectual and professional exchange, workshops (on practice skills) 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 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.
