Course content

Whilst you may read the case law of cases that do go to court, a surprising amount of disputes don't reach court. This is in part due to a combination of more regulation insisting the disputes are discussed and negotiated if possible before court action, and the fact that taking actions to court is a highly expensive process. This is often due to court fees, barrister fees and experts, all required to supply evidence prior and during court trials. There are many methods to improve situations before resorting to court action. You are taught a range of negotiation and dispute resolution methods and this programme can be invaluable to you in any profession within the law.

Being able to negotiate a solution in which all parties agree can be a very worthwhile process in which evidence and issues are openly discussed for all sides to hear and understand. Dispute resolution applies to many different areas of law which include family, employment, contracts, international, environment, intellectual property and many areas of law. Not only is dispute resolution a preferred option it is now an obligatory option for many actions before progressing to court. At Aberdeen you are taught by professionals and experts with prior experience in dispute resolution.

The programme is delivered online so you can fit it around your life at any stage of your career. You gain enhanced negotiation skills across a range of sectors including commercial, employment, consumer and family. Mediation is becoming an important method of solving all sorts of disputes in any aspect of life as it is cost effective and reduces court costs. You are taught by a top 10 law School (Complete University Guide 2018) and graduates have a very high employment rate.
