|Is this Specialiam Right for me?
This LLM Specialism is designed for those lawyers who want to develop advanced skills and knowledge in courtroom litigation or other forms of dispute resolution, such as arbitration and mediation.
What does this Specialism Cover?
It provides specialist courses in both civil and criminal litigation, as well as arbitration and ADR. Some courses focus primarily on English law, while others cover international law, European law or adopt a cross-jurisdictional approach. These are supported by courses that provide historical and theoretical pespectives as well as empirical approaches to understanding how law, courts, judges and dispute resolution actually work in practice.
What is Special about this Specialism?
Courses in this Specialism are taught by leading scholars and practitioners and include special guest seminars by senior judges, lawyers, policy makers and academics. A number of the courses take an interdisciplinary approach and employ innovative practical exercises and moots. Two courses have pioneered joint teaching in advocacy and judicial decision-making, with a special moot exercise overseen by the UK Supreme Court. One course is the only LLM course in the UK to offer a Judicial Placement Award.
