This course is the second course in the Master of Laws Programme in International Commercial Arbitration Law. This course prepares students to conduct scholarly research and aims to provide students with a advanced understanding of legal scholarly methods and theories, as well as complex problems, research developments and trends within international arbitration law. In relation to the initial compulsory course in the master programme this course is more advanced in both the substance and methodological aspects, and addresses new and controversial developments, issues and research trends in this dynamic area of law.

The content of this course consists of advanced scholarly studies of the legal framework and principles that are relevant within international arbitration law. This course will also address international investment arbitration, as well as relevant issues relating to state and state-owned enterprises as parties in international arbitration. The course will also address new and sometimes controversial legal developments, (for example, international ethical regulations, “third-party funding”, analyzing and balancing of the interest of society and private parties, mass claims, and complex arbitration involving multiparty), which demands critical analysis of competing interests and policies. The course will also address the academic debate of the underlying legal theory and basis of international arbitration, which affects both the academic and the practical aspects of this area of law.
