The International Arbitration and Dispute Resolution Certificate is available to students enrolled in a Law Center LL.M. program. The Law Center will not admit students solely for the International Arbitration and Dispute Resolution Certificate program.
The following are requirements for the International Arbitration and Dispute Resolution Certificate:
- Candidates must successfully complete International Law I (or its
equivalent, Public International Law) either in prior law study in the U.S. or
internationally, or complete the course during the first year at Georgetown
Law. This course does not count toward the 10 specialization credits for the
Certificate. These credits are counted as electives toward the LL.M.
- Students must successfully complete a minimum of 10 academic credits in courses
listed under the Certificate in International Arbitration and Dispute
Resolution in the Curriculum Guide (in the right hand column).
- As part of the required 10 specialization credits, each student must
successfully complete at least two courses from "List A: International
Arbitration courses," and at least one course from "List B: Other Dispute
Resolution courses," and the rest of the credits from courses from either List A or List B. These lists are available on the IBEL course schedules
on the IBEL Curriculum Guide.
- A minimum grade point average of B- must be attained in the courses that are counted toward the Certificate's specialization requirements.
