The Master’s Programme in International Investment Treaty Arbitration is a one-year full-time postgraduate programme. The purpose of the programme is to give you advanced and detailed knowledge of international arbitration concerning disputes between investors and host States.
The Faculty of Law at Uppsala University is the oldest law department in Sweden with one of Scandinavia’s most popular education programmes. Our model of teaching is based on a foundation of high quality of research carried out at the faculty and extensive international cooperation with other universities.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
The field of Investment Treaty Arbitration has grown exponentially during the last few years and continues to do so. Lawyers with special knowledge in investment law and arbitration are needed in many different organisations, including law firms, governments, banks, large companies, the European Union and NGOs.
After successfully completing the programme, you will have:
- advanced and detailed knowledge of public international law and international investment treaty arbitration
- advanced and detailed knowledge of relevant arbitral jurisprudence and legal doctrine
- in-depth knowledge of the analytical, scientific and methodological foundations of investment treaty arbitration
- the ability to structure and present – orally and in written form – complex scientific problems to a well-informed audience
During the programme you can expect to:
- discuss and analyse the basic principles and rules of international arbitration.
- learn how to protect foreign investments under international law.
- study key concepts such as expropriation, fair and equitable treatment, state responsibility and attribution.
You will also be studying at Sweden’s oldest university and at a faculty that has a history spanning more than 500 years.
You have a Bachelor’s degree in Law and an interest in international economic and commercial transactions including investments and trade. You may have some practical experience working after earning your Bachelor’s degree but not so long so you have forgotten your broad theoretical base and study techniques.
You are extremely motivated and have confidence in your own ability and knowledge . You are therefore prepared for a demanding education that will require both self-determination and an ability to contribute to team work with fellow students. How successful you become will be up to you and that is how you like it.
A future PhD education is a possibility you may have thought about, but working right after graduation is also something you are considering. You like to keep your options open for now and would therefore value an education that gets you in close contact both with current research and practitioners in the field.
The programme leads to a Master of Laws (60 credits) LLM with Legal Science as the main field of study.
A Bachelor’s degree, equivalent to a Swedish Kandidatexamen, from an internationally recognised university. The main field of study must be Law or Legal Science.
