Arbitration is becoming an increasingly popular and more specialised method to resolve disputes: the School of International Arbitration at Queen Mary is a world-renowned centre of excellence in research and teaching of international arbitration.
International Dispute Resolution (Arbitration) programme offered at Queen Mary University of London covers a comprehensive arbitration curriculum with in-depth study of arbitration theory and exposure to arbitration practical issues (including how to draft arbitration awards), and is taught by leading academics and practitioners in the field. The programme covers a wide range of arbitration-related topics (commercial arbitration, construction arbitration, investment arbitration, ADR, litigation, substantive commercial law).
The diploma is aimed not only at lawyers, but also at other professionals who may be involved in arbitration. A legal qualification will not be a pre-requisite for admission, although you will be expected to appreciate that the course will involve an understanding of law and legal implications. References and materials will be legally orientated, but this will enable the non-lawyer to be better equipped to deal with the issues raised in international commercial arbitration.
