Last modified: 22 May 2019 17:07


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.
