Question about International Arbitration course (online) at New York University


Hi,

I was wondering whether anyone has had any experience with the online International Arbitration course at NYU? Looks fairly affordable but looking forward to thoughts from others.

Here's the link to the course info page; http://www.scps.nyu.edu/content/scps/academics/course_detail.html?id=LEGL1-CE8917

Was thinking to do it before I apply for an LLM in the US but would appreciate any feedback/thoughts.

Thanks!

For $800, it's not bad. And it looks like you can take it as part of a certificate. Not the same as an LLM but probably worth it for the cost and the institution etc. Where are you based?

Hi LLBMan,

I'm based in the UK (just finished my LLB at UCL) and so planning next steps. Want to get into international arbitration but am thinking to do an LLM in the US before I go into practice. This course looks a good introduction to the topic. I think I'll give it a shot to prepare me for my LLM and also see how law is taught in the US. I couldn't figure out whether the course awards a certificate or not..
Where did you study?

So I checked the website and it says that a student can take the International Arbitration course either as a standalone course or as part of a certificate in Dispute Resolution. It seems like you don't need to be enrolled on a prior NYU course to enroll on this course.

Does anyone have any experience with online courses at NYU? Looks pretty solid, but would appreciate feedback.

Thank you.

I enrolled! I called NYU. Just wanted to let others know, in case interested, that the course is taught by senior practitioners at a top international law firm in New York and that the course can count towards a certificate. Also (and I asked this because I may not be in the US before August for my LLM), the course is 100% online, including examination.
