AUWCL offering first fully online LL.M. in International Arbitration and Business Law

Law graduates who are interested in commercial cross-border transactions and dispute settlements now have another law school to choose from that specializes in this type of practice. 

American University Washington College of Law in D.C. is now offering the nation’s first flexible Master of Law degree (LL.M.) in International Arbitration and Business Law. 

“Over the last 50 years, the international community has increasingly embraced arbitration as the main means of resolving complex, international disputes,” said Professor Horacio Grigera Naón, director of the online LL.M. in International Arbitration and Business Law.

The International Arbitration and Business Law program is offered in-person, fully online or can be completed in a hybrid environment that included both in-person classed on campus and online work. 

“Our online and hybrid LL.M. in International Arbitration and Business Law is the first of its kind in the U.S. and builds on [over] 15 years of excellence in teaching arbitration of AUWCL's Center on International Commercial Arbitration,”Professor Naón said.  

According to the law school’s website, the core courses in this program cover some fundamentals that attorneys will need to know, such as business tractions laws, dispute resolution, international contract and sales and international investment law. Graduates and attorneys can then choose one of four focus areas when picking electives: choice-of-law issues in international arbitration, ICC arbitration, the calculation of damages in arbitration, mediation, negotiation and international contract drafting.

“The richness and quality of the curriculum, intensive training programs, faculty and participants create an exceptional environment for the study and analysis of international commercial and investment arbitration,” Professor Naón said.
