Summary

**About This Course**

This course is ideal if you have an analytical mind and are curious about how law can assist and facilitate the resolution of international disputes and thus world trade.

International trade and business have increased significantly over the last few decades, and this has brought a corresponding increase in commercial cross-border disputes, the management and resolution of which is very different from the resolution of purely domestic disputes. Most international law firms have a department dedicated to international dispute resolution and are constantly looking for talented dispute resolution lawyers: Studying this subject is essential, therefore, if you want a career in cross-border dispute resolution or international trade and commerce, or indeed in a trade-related government department.

On this course you will learn to think from an international legal perspective, and will gain comparative knowledge of various approaches to international commercial dispute resolution.

Study at UEA Law School and you will be joining a School that excels in its dedication to offer intellectually diverse, varied and stimulating postgraduate courses, supported by a wide ranging selection of subjects or modules taught by leading experts. The School is based in Earlham Hall, a building of significant historical importance, built in 1642 but recently refurbished, where most of the postgraduate LLM teaching takes place - it will therefore be your home for your period of study.

We place significant emphasis on choice, building your confidence, maximising your employability and developing adaptable transferable skills.

We also believe practical and careers experience is extremely valuable and we’ve developed a programme of opportunities tailored specifically to the needs of our postgraduate students, including placement opportunities for both UK and overseas students. During your course, you can apply for one of 50 internship placements. You can also attend careers panels, commercial awareness workshops, mock job interviews, our annual Law Careers Fair and many other events organised by the UEA Law School and the Careers Service. Law Masters (LLM) degrees are increasingly seen by employers as a means to distinguish applicants. Our graduates have progressed to a wide variety of successful careers, from private practice to government legal departments and international organisations, from universities to industry and commerce.
