Course content

The construction industry increasingly recognises the importance of resolving disputes efficiently and quickly in order to maintain commercial relationships and keep cash flowing within the industry. If you are a professional working in construction, law or a related field, this course will develop your ability to manage disputes efficiently and even to resolve them.

Prominent areas of study will include Principles of Construction Law, Approaches to Dispute Resolution (including arbitration, adjudication and mediation), and Construction Claims.

The structure and content of our teaching meets the examination requirements of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators on each of its pathways to membership - Arbitration, International Arbitration and Construction Adjudication - from Associate level through to Fellowship level.

This course offers two routes depending on your professional background and qualifications. The MSc is ideal if you come from a surveying and construction background, while the LLM is specifically aimed at those who already hold an LLB degree (or equivalent qualification).

MSc Construction Law & Dispute Resolution

You will study all the core modules listed and choose two option modules from the list below.

LLM Construction Law & Dispute Resolution

Your LLB degree will provide you with exemption from Law of Obligations. You will study the first five core modules, plus a Dissertation, and you will also select two option modules from the list below.

Research Excellence Framework 2014

Research Excellence Framework 2014: our University's results for the Architecture, Built Environment and Planning unit, which it entered for the first time, were impressive with 37% of its research being rated world leading or internationally excellent.

Course Benefits

As there is a proliferation of contracts, conflict and disputes in the construction industry many professionals feel the need for advanced study in this specialised field and even to pursue the status of dual qualification. The course is supported by a number of local experienced practitioners, including construction solicitors, barristers, arbitrators, adjudicators and mediators many of whom have key offices in Leeds.

The course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and has links with the Society of Construction Law.

The course is delivered via distance learning. This online method of learning is a great way to progress your career. You can balance the demands of your course with your everyday commitments, allowing you to keep working while you learn. You will be able to study at a time and place to suit you, graduating with a qualification of equal value to one obtained by studying on campus. You will also be able to use our Library and access the support of our expert academic staff, Student Hub and Student Wellbeing Team.
