The award-linked module for this programme (International Arbitration) will cover areas such as sources of arbitration law, arbitration agreements, enforcement and procedural issues in international arbitration and arbitral awards. The aim of this module is to put international arbitration law into context, enabling you to learn how to apply complex theoretical concepts to real world client situations.

In addition to a general online induction to the programme, there is a two-week induction covering the Key Principles of the English Legal System. This is compulsory for non-law students, but also open to students wanting a refresher in the fundamentals of the law of England and Wales. This would be useful for any student who has taken a considerable break from legal education.
