Assessment for Year 1

You will experience a variety of assessment methods, but with a particular focus on coursework. We believe this enables you to best demonstrate your attainment of the learning objectives and therefore enhances your performance, aiding your successful completion of your Master’s degree. 

The Willem C vis Moot Module has tailored assessment so that, in addition to submitting a claimant and respondent memorandum focused on the moot problem which is released early October each year, students also have two written assignments and an arbitration simulation based on the Willem C vis competition problem distributed in the relevant year of study. 

Throughout your course you will be given guidance on your work and constructive feedback to help you improve. This feedback will be on both formative and summative assessments and can be discussed with your Academic Adviser and your module organiser.

This course is all about how the law can assist and facilitate the resolution of international or cross-border disputes and thus world trade. International trade and business have increased significantly over the last few decades, and this has brought a corresponding increase in commercial cross-border disputes, the management and resolution of which is very different from the resolution of purely domestic disputes. Most international law firms have a department dedicated to international dispute resolution and studying this subject is essential, therefore, if you want a career in cross-border dispute resolution or international trade and commerce, or indeed in a trade-related government department.
