The International Commercial Arbitration (LACM17) module offered as part of Shipping and Trade LLM programmes has been recognised by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb).
This effectively means that Swansea LLM students who manage to successfully complete the International Commercial Arbitration module at Swansea will be eligible to apply to be awarded the level of Associate Member of the CIArb. The CIArb, with 16,000 members active in various form of alternative dispute resolution in 149 countries, is the foremost professional institution working for the global promotion, facilitation and development of all forms of private dispute resolution through an international network. Membership of the CIArb is available at three levels of Associate, Member and Fellow.
This is yet another recognition of the reputation that Swansea LLM degrees enjoy in practice as well as in academia. There is no doubt that this accreditation will make the International Commercial Arbitration module even more popular amongst students studying at Swansea as part of their LLM degrees:
- LLM in International Maritime Law
- LLM in Commercial Law
- LLM in International Trade Law
- LLM in Oil, Gas and Renewable Energy Law, and
- LLM in IP Law and Commercial Practice
Speaking after hearing about the recognition, Associate Professor George Leloudas, the co-ordinator of the International Commercial Arbitration module, said:
“We are very pleased with the renewal of our RCP status with the Institute, which is a testament to the quality of the course. We look forward to continue delivering it to our enthusiastic cohort in the years to come”.
