University of Aberdeen launches new online law program
The University of Aberdeen has launched a brand new online LLM in Dispute Resolution to help meet the interest in the use of non-court means of settling legal disputes. It can be studied part time and online over periods of one, two or two-and-a-half years.
The Dispute Resolution LLM is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) to Membership or Fellowship level, and is the only course of its kind in the UK that focuses on negotiation, mediation and arbitration.
Derek Auchie, the Dispute Resolution LLM co-ordinator from the University of Aberdeen’s Law School, says, “Mediation is growing across all sectors on a global level and is often a quick and cost-effective way to bring disputes to an end while maintaining an ongoing commercial, employment, community or family relationship.
“However, many of those involved in negotiating a dispute do not have the skills to do so effectively, and the new LLM – accredited by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) – is geared towards busy professionals who are involved in doing business or representing clients where there is scope for a dispute.
