The LLM in Comparative and International Dispute Resolution aims to inspire a new generation of lawyers to rethink traditional approaches to conflict and conflict resolution. Grounded in dispute resolution theory, this Master of Law programme combines solid theoretical grounding, broad interdisciplinary training and opportunities for individual study and skills development.

School of International Arbitration at Queen Mary

The School of International Arbitration (SIA) at Queen Mary aims to actively participate in the academic discussion on arbitration. The SIA is a research-lead institution that focuses on the study of the particular problems arising in arbitration, and contributes to the development of arbitration theory. It also aims to teach and train a future generation of lawyers that want to be involved in international arbitration. Frequently, lawyers that practice international arbitration, whether as counsel or as arbitrators, have a limited knowledge of the complex theoretical problems of this specialist subject. The School takes a comparative and practice-oriented approach to the teaching of arbitration so that the students obtain a deep understanding of the special characteristics and needs of international arbitration.

Overview
The LLM in Medical Law is one of 20 LLM programmes of study at Queen Mary.

Overview

The LLM in Medical Law programme engages with a new and expanding field which offers considerable scope for interdisciplinary study and collaboration. The responsibilities of those providing health care and the expectations of those receiving it are legally defined, and as a consequence the law is increasingly involved in dispute resolution.

The programme offers a comprehensive examination of the role of law within the contemporary healthcare environment. It provides a sound knowledge and understanding of the institutions and organisations associated with medical law and the interrelationships between them.

The LLM in Medical Law is suitable for you, if you are a law graduate or a practising lawyer, or legal executive, with an interest in developing your knowledge of medical law and health policy.

Your fellow students will come from the UK and more than 80 other countries, each able to draw on prior academic and in many cases professional experiences from different jurisdictions to enrich discussion and debate in class.

Taught Modules

To specialise in this area, you must select 90 credits of modules from this list and do your compulsory dissertation in the field of Medical Law (45 credits). The additional 45 credits of taught modules can be in this area or can be unrelated and therefore selected from the full list of LLM modules.

The LLM Law and Economics programme is a joint programme offered by the Centre for Commercial Law Studies and the School of Economics and Finance at Queen Mary University of London.

It is designed for students with a strong academic background in Law or Economics.

Aims of Programme

Graduates of the programme will possess a solid grounding in Legal theory and modern Economics that will enable them to conduct, assess, and supervise both theoretical and applied research in the field. Students who perform well on the programme are encouraged to apply for a joint doctoral study in the School of Economics and Finance and the Centre for Commercial Law Studies. For those seeking to develop or start their careers outside of academia, the new LLM programme will include a number of practical and knowledge transfer components that will allow a better transition to work outside the higher education sector. Students will, for example, have the opportunity to engage in an academic year-long Investment Club. During this time, students will be gaining hands on experience in trading and portfolio analysis alongside their studies.

Who is the course aimed at?

Such interdisciplinary skills make this LLM ideal for those already in, or planning a career in law or economics in academia, the public sector, international institutions, financial or legal industry or management consulting.

The LLM in Law and Economics is available to study full-time for one year or part-time over two years.

The programme of study provides a flexible mix of classroom based teaching (assessed by formal examinations and/or coursework) through:
◦An introductory pre-sessional in mathematics and statistics
◦Two compulsory taught modules which lay a foundation to Law and Economics theories
◦A 15,000 word dissertation
◦Choice of optional law and/or economic modules

Course description

Mediation is developing at great speed in many countries. For example, it is part of the civil justice system of England and Wales through the Civil Procedure Rules and the provisions in the rules which encourage the use of mediation. Additional government initiatives in England and Wales have been introduced such as automatic referral to mediators for small claims court matters.

In Europe, the EU Directive on Cross-Border Mediation has led to the implementation of mediation legislation throughout the EU. Beyond Europe, other developments continue: for example, Japan has introduced mediation in its financial services sector; Hong Kong is promoting mediation through new legislation protecting confidentiality of the process; the International Bar Association has drafted investor-state mediation rules; Nigeria continues to develop its multi-door courthouses through which mediation is a primary process.

The Postgraduate Distance Learning Diploma in International Dispute Resolution - Mediation has a strong focus on mediation and conciliation. The course will introduce you to the process of mediation and its role in the resolution of disputes. The diploma not only provides an understanding of the theoretical, practical and ethical problems relating to international mediation, but can also provide a stepping stone for professionals to become involved in international alternative dispute resolution (ADR).

The diploma is aimed not only at lawyers, but also at other professionals who may be involved in mediation - be it as a disputant, representative or perhaps as a mediator: a legal qualification will not be a prerequisite for admission, although you will be expected to appreciate that the course will involve an understanding of law and legal implications. References and materials will be legally orientated, but this will enable the non-lawyer to be better equipped to deal with the issues raised in international business mediation.

This programme will:
◦Give you a thorough grounding on all major issues arising in day-to-day international mediation practice.
◦Promote academic research of the highest standard on selected topics of interest.
◦Allow flexibility to enable you to plan and balance your study and work commitments.

Why is the course relevant?

Mediation is developing at great speed in many countries. For example, it is part of the civil justice system of England and Wales through the Civil Procedure Rules and the provisions in the rules which encourage the use of mediation. Additional government initiatives in England and Wales have been introduced such as:

A pilot scheme for the automatic referral to mediation in the UK County Court Money Claims Centre for claims of less than £5,000.
Automatic referral to mediators for small claims court matters (claims up to £5,000).
A Court of Appeal scheme whereby appeals of personal injury and contract claims of up to £200,000 will be automatically recommended for mediation.
The Department for Business, Innovations and Skills has instituted a pilot scheme for two regional mediation networks for small and medium sized enterprises.
In Europe, the EU Directive on Cross-Border Mediation (2008/52/EC) has led to the implementation of mediation legislation throughout the EU. Beyond Europe, other developments continue: for example, Japan has introduced mediation in its financial services sector; Hong Kong is promoting mediation through new legislation protecting confidentiality of the process; the International Bar Association has drafted investor-state mediation rules; Nigeria continues to develop its multi-door courthouses through which mediation is a primary process.

"The LLM in Paris is an innovative programme developed by experienced Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) academics, many of whom are also practitioners, to cater to students who are able to study full-time as well as to practitioners who would like to enhance their professional knowledge and career developments on a part-time basis. Leading to a prestigious University of London qualification, this course will provide you with in-depth immersion in commercial law from both comparative and international perspectives, within a common law framework. We appreciate that for many students, improving their command of legal English is a vital part of undertaking an LLM and we have therefore incorporated legal English support throughout the course." Academic Programme Director, Dr Maxi Scherer, MA, PhD (Paris Sorbonne), LLM (Cologne), Member of the Paris Bar, Solicitor in England and Wales.

Aims of Programme

The Queen Mary Paris LLM provides in-depth immersion in a common law environment with an exceptionally wide range of modules taught in English by distinguished Queen Mary faculty members. One of the distinctive features of the Paris LLM is the flexible structure of courses designed to enable students with working or other commitments to complete the programme on a part time basis without having to interrupt their professional career.

The programme also seeks to broaden and deepen students' understanding of their own legal systems by giving them the opportunity and the tools with which to explore current commercial law issues from an international and comparative perspective. Ultimately, the programme aims to better prepare contemporary lawyers for practising the legal profession in an increasingly globalised world.

Who is the course aimed at?

The programme is designed to be attractive to practitioners and students based in Paris, who are seeking to develop expertise in a niche area, and also possibly wanting to satisfy continuing education requirements, but do not have the time to study full-time in London. It is possible that practitioners based outside of Paris but with regular meetings in Paris may consider the programme.

Partnership with Paris Bar School (EFB)

We have arranged with the Paris Bar School to allow their students to validate the LLM as part of their training (PPI). For further details, please contact Brice Martin, Responsible des relations internationals –

Partnership with SciencesPo Law School

We have an informal partnership with SciencesPo Law, a leading law school in Paris where many courses are taught in English by prestigious faculty members and visiting professors. Students of the Queen Mary Paris LLM will be allowed to participate in certain selected courses and seminars of SciencesPo Law School, and vice versa. Assessment and core teaching for LLM students will still be provided by Queen Mary.

Programme structure

The LLM in Paris programme has two start dates, January (Spring Term), and September (Autumn Term), and can be taken on a full or part-time basis. As a rule, students who enrol on the programme on a full-time basis are expected to complete within one year and those who enrol part-time are expected to complete in two years. In exceptional circumstances, part-time students can complete the programme in up to four years.


The taught elements of modules are generally taught in the evening or as intensive blocks over five days.

Dates for individual modules can be found on the relevant module pages. View the full module index. A module calendar is provided to all students with offers, which includes details of provisional exam dates, Critical Thinking and Writing in Law Classes, and other information.

Students can opt for an LLM in International Business Law, which offers the full range of modules available on the Paris LLM programme, or a specialised LLM.

Specialised LLMs are offered in the following areas:
◦Banking and Finance Law
◦Energy and Natural Resources Law
◦Intellectual Property Law
◦International Dispute Resolution and Economic Law

Modules:
◦You must take a total of 180 credits, consisting of either:
◦Six modules, each worth 22.5 credits (total 135), 15,000-word dissertation (45 credits), a minimum of four modules must be from the specialist grouping, or
◦Seven modules, each worth 22.5 credits (total 157.5), 7,500-word essay (22.5 credits), a minimum of five modules must be from the specialist grouping

Assessment

A variety of assessment strategies will be used. Taught modules are usually assessed by unseen written examinations, but in certain cases other assessment methods may be used, such as in class presentations, take home assignments, a combination of short essays and written examination or assessment entirely based on course essays. This is in addition to the compulsory dissertation or 7,500 word essay.

The Critical Thinking and Writing in Law Programme

Students will also benefit from English language support, as writing within a specific discipline at postgraduate level is a skill that needs acquiring. The Critical Thinking and Writing in Law Programme has designed a series of tailor-made hands-on workshops and online support that will allow students to deepen their understanding of the learning strategies required at postgraduate study, and which will help them improve their research and writing skills, and provide them with the confidence necessary to successfully meet the requirements and demands of the LLM. Students will be given the opportunity to practise the skills required at LLM level, receive feedback on their performance, and critically reflect on their own practice.

The Diploma in International Dispute Resolution not only provides an understanding of the theoretical, practical and ethical problems relating to International Dispute Resolution, but also provides a stepping stone for professionals becoming more involved in international alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes. Read more
The Diploma in International Dispute Resolution not only provides an understanding of the theoretical, practical and ethical problems relating to International Dispute Resolution, but also provides a stepping stone for professionals becoming more involved in international alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes.

All taught modules are taught as part of the LLM degree. On this Diploma there are core modules which you must take in order to qualify.

There are two distinct Diploma routes, Arbitration or Mediation, to choose from, each with their own specialised focus.

Continuous assessment will provide regular feedback and enhance the student-tutor relationship. Students will also be able to address questions and concerns directly to the course convenor and the course director. Participants are entitled to use specialist electronic databases, such as Westlaw, Lexis Nexis and Kluwer Arbitration.

Why is the course relevant?

Mediation is developing at great speed in many countries. For example, it is part of the civil justice system of England and Wales through the Civil Procedure Rules and the provisions in the rules which encourage the use of mediation. Additional government initiatives in England and Wales have been introduced such as:

A pilot scheme for the automatic referral to mediation in the UK County Court Money Claims Centre for claims of less than £5,000.
Automatic referral to mediators for small claims court matters (claims up to £5,000).
A Court of Appeal scheme whereby appeals of personal injury and contract claims of up to £100,000 will be automatically recommended for mediation.
The Department for Business, Innovations and Skills has instituted a pilot scheme for two regional mediation networks for small and medium sized enterprises.
In Europe, the EU Directive on Cross-Border Mediation (2008/52/EC) has led to the implementation of mediation legislation throughout the EU. Beyond Europe, other developments continue: for example, Japan has introduced mediation in its financial services sector; Hong Kong is promoting mediation through new legislation protecting confidentiality of the process; the International Bar Association has drafted investor-state mediation rules; Nigeria continues to develop its multi-door courthouses through which mediation is a primary process.
