Course Introduction

Our Law with International Arbitration and Commercial Law LLB degree offers a unique preparation for the realities of modern commercial law by helping you develop expertise both in the substance of contemporary commercial law and in the most important method for the resolution of contemporary business disputes. Developed in collaboration with an advisory board of internationally'recognised specialists, the degree prepares you for one of the few genuinely cross'border fields of legal practice while ensuring that you still receive the broad legal education offered on a standard LLB course. The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators has granted Brunel Law School Recognised Course Provider status. This means that when you graduate you will be eligible to become a member of the Institute. Unlike other graduates you will not be required to complete any additional courses to qualify, saving up to '3,000 in extra course fees. The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators is the primary professional body within arbitration, and the Law School is proud that graduates can put MCIArb after their names (subject to successfully completing Year 1 of the curriculum and the Year 3 module 'International Sales Law and Arbitration').
