There are several methods which can be used to resolve disputes, each with its particular benefits and drawbacks. This course gives you a sound base of knowledge to choose the most appropriate approach, giving you the best chance to reach a resolution
The first module is substantially more extensive than it was probably expected because it covers a wide range of sources of maritime disputes. Our purpose for this was to offer a better and enriched understanding of the complicated and technical nature of the law in these areas.
This module examines issues related to the enforcement of maritime claims with a special focus on procedures and remedies.
The aim of this module is to familiarise you with the practice and main concepts of ‘alternative dispute resolution’ (ADR) and especially negotiation and mediation. The objective is to illustrate how effective ADR processes can be.
The present module outlines the key features of arbitration, it explores its advantages and disadvantages in comparison with other forms of dispute resolution, it presents the various arbitral institutions and types of arbitration and also briefly deals with the issue of intervention of the court in arbitral proceedings.
This module offers an account of possible pitfalls to an effective arbitral procedure and focuses on variables to be considered in order to meet the expectations of international contracting parties to avoid complexities and time consuming processes in resolving their dispute.
This module discusses various legal issues relating to the procedure of arbitration
