Last modified: 27 Feb 2018 20:09


Course Overview

Arbitration is growing in popularity as a dispute resolution method across a variety of
sectors, and internationally. The law in this area is technical and complex,
and a full understanding of how it operates is essential for anyone advising
clients, or framing contracts carrying arbitration clauses.



The principles and content of international arbitration law are considered, with the UK arbitral system as
the template. Other systems, including some of the institutional rules, are
also considered.
