International Commercial Arbitration

Module code: LW3581

Why do parties use international commercial arbitration to settle disputes? What mechanisms are at work when settling these disputes? How can parties enforce a privately issued decision on their dispute?

You'll focus on both UK and international perspectives in a module that covers the theoretical principles at the basis of arbitration as well as the issues arising in its daily practice. You'll explore everything from the relationship of international commercial arbitration, to our domestic judicial system.
