About

The Arbitration and Dispute Resolution programme at City University of Hong Kong aims to develop expertise in domestic and international arbitration and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in Hong Kong and the Asia-Pacific Region; and to foster original research in arbitration and ADR.

Overview

More specifically, the Arbitration and Dispute Resolution programme at City University of Hong Kong aims to:

  • provide legal and general knowledge of arbitration and other methods of resolving disputes, as well as practical skills in relation to the process, to professionals, executives and others with existing expertise in a broad range of professional, industrial and commercial activities;
  • acquaint graduates with the various kinds of arbitration and dispute resolution, to enable them to participate effectively in all capacities: as a party, as advocate, as expert and as arbitrator and mediator. However, students are reminded that:

not all graduates can expect to become arbitrators or mediators and the programme does not assure graduates of appointments, and

it is not an objective of the programme to train barristers or to provide training in advocacy skills at a level equivalent to that required of a professional advocate.

  • assist students to obtain relevant professional qualifications.
