In the global economy, parties are turning more and more to International Arbitration to resolve transborder commercial and investment disputes. Our specialization in International Arbitration provides a unique educational opportunity to acquire a profound grounding in the field of international arbitration.
Our school is prominently positioned, both academically and geographically, for the study of international arbitration law. Moreover, Miami is the international arbitration center for the Americas and beyond which allows for interaction with local professionals who have extensive knowledge and experience in international arbitration as well as a wide network of contacts, particularly in the Americas.
Students in this program are taught by an internationally renowned faculty. Our Chair, Jan Paulsson, is one of the world's leading experts in international arbitration.
The program, open to U.S. and foreign law graduates, offers specialized theoretical and practical courses in international arbitration. In addition, there is a broad selection of related subjects including course offerings with a focus on Latin America for future practitioners wishing to pursue a career involving interests in that region.
