KNect365 Learning and De Montfort University see launch of Master of Laws (LLM) in International Dispute Resolution

KNect365 Learning partners with leading academic institutions to deliver world leading Legal studies programmes. Starting 13thSeptember 2019, they are launching a brand-new Master of Laws (LLM) in International Dispute Resolution in collaboration with140-year old Leicester De Montfort Law School, ranked Gold under the Teaching Excellence Framework.

Dispute resolution is one of the fastest moving areas of law, making this course more relevant than ever. Events such as Brexit, trade wars, and the advent of international projects such as China’s Belt and Road Initiative give rise to new ways of dealing with complex disputes. Split into three parts, the core module taught in 2019 will focuson Introduction to Law and ADR, with the second part allowing students to individually chose two modules based on their areas of interest. The second year will be exclusively dedicated to a dissertation around construction law.

The partnership between the two institutions is a long standing one with over 25 years of history and collaboratively delivering over 15 postgraduate courses across the academic year. The programme will be delivered entirely by tutored distance learning and is ideal forin-house or private practice lawyers in arbitration, civil and criminal litigation, construction law or international law, and engineers, surveyors and conflict and risk managers.One alumnus of another De Montfort University course commented: “The learning experience at De Montfort University was positive and has served as a significant resource in my career and personal growth”.

De Montfort University’s LLM Programme Lead, John Hendy said this about the course “Dispute Resolution is a critical function within commercial enterprise. The development of technology has allowed huge growth in trade. As law continues to battle to keep up to date, more businesses are turning to arbitration and mediation to settle disputes, especially within the international arena. With the onset of Brexit, the skills set takes on a new meaning as agreements are less likely to be framed within the context of EU law. In addition, the opportunity to study and qualify as an arbitrator has seen increased global growth.”
