The course is intended for anyone wishing to demonstrate a commitment to contentious law in public and private international and commercial legal contexts. The taught part of the programme includes modules which reflect the three main forms of the dispute resolution process, namely adjudication (litigation and arbitration), alternative dispute resolution (ADR – principally mediation), and negotiation.
This course differs from the International Commercial Law LLM course which is primarily concerned with non-contentious aspects of commerce (modules include competition law, trade, and insurance).
Class sizes are, in general, quite small, and you will be able to mix with students on other Masters courses at Westminster Law School.

The Europa-Institut at Saarland University offers a one year Master's program in European and International Law with five modules: Module 1: European Integration and Modules 2-5 with the study units European Economic Law, Foreign Trade and Investment, International Dispute Resolution and European and International Protection of Human Rights.
Example: Specialization in International Dispute Resolution
The study unit International Dispute Resolution familiarizes students with typical problems and the basic concepts of international commercial arbitration, international investment arbitration and alternative dispute resolution. The aim of the study unit is to focus on efficient and fair dispute resolution in a transnational context, in a world where commercial courts are national institutions. This study unit offers, in addition to the named lecture topics, complementing lectures for increased understanding and insight, for instance in “International Business Transactions”, a lecture focusing on students acquiring specialized expertise as well as insight into the many cultural perspectives and aspects relevant to doing business across borders, in order for students to get an enhanced understanding of the complexity of cross-border trade. Case studies, negotiation, and procedural training are an important part of the study unit and provide an ideal addition to the lectures on offer. This enables students to obtain an ideal mix of theoretically minded lectures, equipping students with the necessary analytical abilities, and more practically applicable courses, allowing students to put their acquired theoretical knowledge into practice. Distinguished guest lecturers form an integral part of the program. Furthermore, excursions to international institutions (such as the ICC in...

Queen Mary University of London’s online programmes in International Dispute Resolution aim to inspire a new generation of lawyers to rethink traditional approaches to conflict and its resolution and to equip them with the tools required to succeed in the field. They combine solid theoretical grounding, broad interdisciplinary training, and opportunities for individual study and skills development. Further, our dynamic programmes are designed to offer you all the excellent learning opportunities you would get on campus, without the restrictions of fixed times and locations.
The online programmes in International Dispute Resolution can be studied part-time as Master of Law (LLM), Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) or Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert). The PGDip and the PGCert are shorter versions of the LLM programme. Unlike the LLM, they do not require completion of a dissertation but provide you with masters-level content. The difference between the PGDip and the PGCert is the number of modules required (the PGCert is shorter than the PGDip)....
