King's College London's Dickson Poon School of Law (KCL) will launch an LL.M. pathway in International Dispute Resolution this year.
The new pathway aims to prepare students to help counsel companies in a world where business is increasingly done across boarders.
"As companies move into emerging and frontier economies, international disputes increasingly raise complex issues that are not conducive to resolution by traditional litigation mechanisms," says Mark S McNeill, an international arbitration partner at Shearman & Sterling LLP.
"More than ever, such disputes require lawyers with a specialised set of skills and a broad understanding of cross-border legal and cultural issues."
To help students gain these skills, classes in the new LL.M. in International Dispute Resolution will tackle a range issues in the field. The specialist modules will cover topics in mechanisms under European and international law, mechanisms between private parties, and current developments in international dispute resolution.
For more information, please see the KCL news release announcing the launch of the LL.M. in International Dispute Resolution. You can also read about KCL's LL.M. offerings on its Full Profile on LLM GUIDE.
