The Comparative and International Dispute Resolution programme aims to challenge a new generation of lawyers to rethink traditional approaches to conflict. Grounded in dispute resolution theory, the programme combines broad interdisciplinary training and opportunities for individualised study and skills development.


To specialise in this area, students must select a minimum of two modules from this list and do their compulsory dissertation in the field of Comparative and International Dispute Resolution. The additional required module can be in this area or can be unrelated and therefore selected from the full list of available modules.

Note: Not all of the modules listed will be available in any one year. Any modules not available in the forthcoming academic session will be marked as soon as this information is confirmed by teaching academics.
