Anybody got any news from SU already? I wonder if anyone received an admission confirmation already, although they say that the finals selection will be made in April only...

Thanks a lot for your feedback! Cheers - M

Thanks for your message, Gachuba.
Let's hope we all get news in April, as they state on the SU webpage. Let's keep in touch, since we might get to meet each other during our study. Take care - Maude

received admission today and a big hello to everyone here. Can someone please summarize how good this program is? I've heard only positive things but then again I'm in the US and perhaps don't have a good perspective on the program.

If you want to work in the field of International Commercial Arbitration this programme is the one to attend, since its practical approach practical approach - including the mock arbitration and the knowledge provided by lecturers with a remarkable practical experience - combined with the theoretical study of the basic principles and rules governing international arbitration, make the programme unique. Several types of arbitral proceedings are treated in the programme both ad hoc as well as institutional forms. The list of lecturers speaks for itself, comprising highly renowned legal scholars - in particular Professor Heumann (member of the '99 Swedish Arbitration Act drafting committee) - as well as experienced arbitrators and counsels of reputable law firms, such as Bo Nilsson, Claes Lundblad or Hans Bagner.

Moreover, it is hard to imagine a more adequate place to specialise in international arbitration than Stockholm considering its key role and outstanding reputation in this field, with the SCC Arbitration Institute as one of the leading arbitration institutions in the world and the SCC Arbitration Rules playing an eminently important role in international arbitration.

So, if you're positive about wanting to work in Internat. Arbitration, I can recommend this programme. Otherwise, you should attend another programme, since this one is a really "specialized" one. Good luck deciding and all the best - M

Maude, your comments are like copied from a newspaper or something like that :)) (just kidding)...
it's true.... the program is very specialized.. you only study arbitration law... but when you're finished, you know everything in int'l commercial arbitration.

I am first graduate of this program (2003-2004) and I've got a lot of things out of having my LLM there. I'm still in touch with the my professors from SU and I've heard they are improving the program every year.
I've also heard that the competition for being addmited is really high (even higher than in some English and US celebrity law schools). So, my congratulations to Karamazov :)

This program is becoming more and more prestigious every year...

Hi!

I was reading some messages about the course. I also applied and the University told me I am in the reserve list. Universities in my coutry (Brazil) work really different, so I'm woundering if being in the reserve list means that somebody has to give up of the place so I'll have a chance, or if the admission office is still considering a few numbers of applications before the final decision...

And about scholarships, take a look at the Swedish Institute web site, there are some offers there.

Thanks in advance!

Dear Carol,
The way I understand it they have already taken the final decision. Being on the reserve list indeed means that you will have to wait/hope for someone out of the chosen 40 applicants to turn down the offer they were made. Yet, you should not get desperate, since a high percentage will withdraw and/or turn down the offer - for different reasons (financing problems, change of mind, choice of another university, last-minute problems, etc.). Therefore, being on the reserve list is good news and you will hopefully have positive news from SU at the end of April. Good luck to you and all the best to you!

I'd be curious to know, Raxy, how the graduates in your year went about securing employment. You mention that you do arbitrations and are busier than ever. Did your classmates who had no prior experience find employment in the field upon graduation from the program? If so, in what countries? I am from the US. I wonder if you know about the success rate of US citizens in finding jobs in the field.

Dear All! Is really worth applying for Arbitration program in SU? I understand that Stokholm is the arbitration center nevertheless the course schedule is actually designed only for a fall term (in spring students work on thesis, i.e. no regular classes). I'm a little nervous about that. Will a fall term be enough to obtain good knowledge in arbitration? I'll appreciate your answers. The alumnies' success stories are very welcomed!
