Our Goals

Upon Mediation LLM graduation our students will:

  • Gain extensive and systematic knowledge about different ways of resolving disputes, their peculiarities, applicability, pros, and cons;
  • Be able to advise the parties to the dispute on the most appropriate way to resolve a particular dispute;
  • Have the necessary knowledge and practical skills to carry out the mediation procedure professionally and/or to properly represent their clients in mediation.

Job Opportunities

Having graduated from the Mediation LLM, individuals can work as dispute settlement specialists, representatives (counsel) to the parties to the dispute, negotiators, mediators or conciliators in the future. It is likely that a large part of LL.M. graduates will be interested in providing mediation services, the other - using their acquired competencies in mediation assisting the parties involved in the dispute as consultants, others - will become professional dispute resolution specialists capable of identifying the most appropriate way of solving the problem according to the characteristics of the particular dispute and its parties.
