The School of International Arbitration is a centre of excellence in research and teaching of international arbitration and is part of the Centre for Commercial Law Studies at Queen Mary University of London. The School aims to promote advanced teaching and research in the area of international arbitration and international dispute resolution generally. To achieve these objectives, the School offers a wide range of international arbitration courses including specialist LLM modules, postgraduate diplomas, professional courses and training, and one of the largest specialist PhD programmes in the world. Today the School is widely acknowledged as the world’s leading postgraduate teaching and research centre on international arbitration. Since its establishment, more than 3,000 students from more than 100 countries have graduated from, and 30 PhD students have successfully completed their doctoral studies with, the School. Many of our graduates are now successfully practising arbitration around the world as advocates, in-house counsel, academics and arbitrators. Others serve international organisations, including UNCITRAL and the World Bank, or work for major arbitration institutions. The strength of the School lies in the quality and diversity of its students and the desire of the School’s staff to shape our students’ academic and professional development. However, the work of the School extends well beyond the classroom and plays a leading role in the evolution of arbitration as an academic subject. Arbitration is a dynamic and adaptable process and so is the School in its profile and outlook.
