International Commercial Arbitration Law at Stockholm University


I am still evaluating between QMUL and Stockholm.
I am also waiting to hear from NUS.
I'll take a final call then.
What about you?


I'm waiting for MIDS. I'll decide between them basing on the result of MIDS.


I also applied MIDS and Stockholm. Any insight as to which one to choose?

I also applied MIDS and Stockholm. Any insight as to which one to choose?


From my point of view, after going through the Course Schedule of this year at Stockholm and the Courses at MIDS, I feel that ICAL program at Stockholm is more practical oriented and has a more hands-on, "what you learn is what you practise" approach, whereas, I feel that MIDS is more academic based and theoretical in nature.

Most of the faculty at Stockholm are practitioners and people with real experience including the course director, Patricia Shaughnessy, who is a Vice Chairperson at Stockholm Chamber of Commerce, whereas MIDS, from what I gather after looking at their Facebook posts and going through the list of faculty members, it has people with very high reputation in very reputed institutions, but, I feel it lacks people with real-time experience or who are not directly involved with realtime practice.

As for the fee issue is concerned, if you can afford the fee even if you dont get a scholarship, then you can go with MIDS. Stockholm, I feel has very less fee.

I have talked with a few current and passed out students of MIDS and Stockholm, I heard from them that, MIDS has a very good curriculum with excellent staff and all that, but, one of the guys said that, they donot provide any career counselling or support, but remember, this is from just one guy and was quickly debunked by the remaining students as false.

What I conclude is that, MIDS and Stockholm are two different institutes, MIDS focuses on International Dispute Resolution in general and it gives you more scope and many choices when searching for jobs, whereas, Stockholm ICAL focuses only on Commercial Arbitration and it narrows down your scope to find work after graduation.

Both of them have their strong points and weak points, choose among them depending upon the type of career options you are good with and looking at.

Many thanks for your detailed analysis. I agree with your observations. Reputation wise, these two programs are the best worldwide, it is hard to say which one is definitely better than the other. The concern I have about MIDS is that as it covers a variety of areas in DR, how much can we actually learn in each area? I am worried that we might end up only having a general introduction in each course. For Stockholm, it seems the second semester is mainly academic thesis. Courses are mainly in the first semester. It seems MIDS is more intense, course wise, given the fact that it has two semesters of full courses and thesis in June to Aug.

Congrats! Have to admit that competition for the available seats was extremely hard! Even a GPA of 4.4+ from LL.B in Europe was not enough this time for being admitted without a place in a waiting list.
