Recent legal graduates or even those who have practiced law for several years may decide to sharpen their skills by pursuing an LLM. By earning this type of advanced legal degree, students learn more about a specific area of law.

What is an LLM in Dispute Resolution? LLM programs in dispute resolution mainly focus on tactics, strategies, and opportunities for resolving issues between individuals and commercial entities outside of the court system and without the need for litigation. Students who decide to earn this degree may take classes that cover arbitration, mediation practices and principles, and learning to identify where mediation or arbitration is a beneficial course of action.

Students who earn an LLM in Dispute Resolution can sharpen their negotiating skills, which can help them become a sought-after mediator. They may also become better at identifying mediation options and researching different areas of the law, which can help them excel during their career.

When it comes to the cost of earning an LLM in Dispute Resolution, prices vary according to what the institution attended charges for tuition. They can also depend on where the institution is located and how long students take to finish the program.

When students finish this type of LLM degree, many decide to become a professional dispute resolution consultant, mediator, or arbitrator either for a private law firm, government organization, or commercial entity. However, many attorneys also decide to earn this type of degree so they can become better advocates for their clients who go the mediation or arbitration route. In some cases, academics decide to earn this degree to sharpen their negotiating skills.

Those interested in earning an LLM in Dispute Resolution have many program options throughout the world. To find out more, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
