International Dispute Resolution LL.M.

Prepare yourself for the future of international dispute resolution in a global economy

A thorough knowledge of national laws and procedures is no longer sufficient to competently counsel clients in the globalised world of the 21st Century.

As technology, trade and transportation have reduced the significance of borders, trans-frontier activity has become part of our daily routine. International and European law have developed dynamically to catch up with this quickly changing world and to regulate cross-border activities that national law can rarely govern efficiently.

The international dispute resolution LLM, prepares you for a career in the challenging and exciting field of international dispute resolution. It provides you with a solid foundation in all relevant areas including both private and public international means of dispute resolution and allows them to specialize in the fields of their choice.

The faculty combines both King’s award-winning academics and some of the world’s leading practitioners..
