LLM in Private International Law


Hello all,

Just wondering which law schools are considered the leaders in the area of private international law (e.g. international arbitration, transnational litigation, conflict of laws, etc.)? I'm looking particularly at the US and UK but please do tell if there are other jurisdictions that have strong programmes in this area.

I've heard that Cambridge and Columbia has a strong public international law reputation but I haven't heard much about their private international law reputation.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there!
Cambridge is famous for it's International Commercial Litigation course taught by Prof Richard Fentiman who is one of the leading authorities in the field. The problem is that in the field, this is the only course that one could take in Cambridge and you need to find 3 more courses.
I don't know about Columbia but they do have both Arbitration and Private International Law courses as well as International Commercial Law with Prof Garro who is also extremely well.
An alternative, that I chose, is Oxford. They do have a course on International Commercial Arbitration and it is a good level. They also have Conflict of Laws taught again by the leading authorities in the field [Professors Briggs, Dickinson, and Peel] and the course is one of the most demanding but exquisite that one could attend. There is also a course on Transnational Commercial Law taught by Thomas Krebbs which is also quite interesting.

Yes, I agree very much with this. Either the LLM at Cambridge or the BCL at Oxford will work very well for public and private international law.
