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).

  • A minimum grade point average of B- must be attained in the courses that are counted toward the Certificate's specialization requirements.
