Overview

Queen Mary University of London’s online programmes in International Dispute Resolution aim to inspire a new generation of lawyers to rethink traditional approaches to conflict and its resolution and to equip them with the tools required to succeed in the field. They combine solid theoretical grounding, broad interdisciplinary training, and opportunities for individual study and skills development. Further, our dynamic programmes are designed to offer you all the excellent learning opportunities you would get on campus, without the restrictions of fixed times and locations.

The online programmes in International Dispute Resolution can be studied part-time as Master of Law (LLM), Postgraduate Diploma (PGDip) or Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert). The PGDip and the PGCert are shorter versions of the LLM programme. Unlike the LLM, they do not require completion of a dissertation but provide you with masters-level content. The difference between the PGDip and the PGCert is the number of modules required (the PGCert is shorter than the PGDip).... [-]
