Objectifs

Training objectives

Paris is at the heart of the world of international arbitration, both in terms of international commercial arbitration and investment arbitration. The long-lasting French tradition of international arbitration law is based on the combination of the forces committed to ensuring its international influence. The excellence of academics and practitioners in this field is combined with the constant desire of the French legislator and courts to ensure the effectiveness of French international arbitration law in the interests of the parties.

Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas University is heir to the former Faculté de Droit et de Sciences Economiques de Paris, once comprising the Sorbonne and located in the heart of the Latin Quarter since the 13th century. Considered as France’s first Law University, Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas University is dedicated to upholding the tradition from which it arose.

In keeping with its tradition of excellence in international arbitration, as evidenced by the training offered to French-speaking students, Paris 2 Panthéon-Assas University now also offers advanced training in the field, entirely in English. This training is provided by the best specialists in international arbitration, whether they are academics, practitioners (lawyers, quantum experts, managers of third-party funders, artificial intelligence researchers, etc.), based in Paris or in other arbitration centres (London, Singapore, etc.).

Delivered in the heart of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés District, the LL.M. AWArDS bears its name well (Assas World Arbitration and Disputes Settlement). The course will cover both French international arbitration law (commercial and investment arbitration law) and the main elements of comparative law in this field. The LL.M. will also deepen other aspects of dispute resolution mechanisms: mediation, negotiation, settlement agreements, international business litigation, etc.

Thus, the main objectives of the LL.M. Awards can be summarized for the benefit of its English-speaking students from all over the world:

  • To master the fundamental elements of international arbitration law.
  • To understand the peculiarities of the various fields of specialization within international arbitration.
  • To understand the place of international arbitration in the context of international dispute settlement.
  • To comprehend the relationship between arbitral proceedings and state or regional legal systems.
  • To broaden the understanding of international arbitration from a comparative perspective.
  • To get more familiar with the substantive and international aspects of certain legal regimes (international contract law, protection of foreign investments, etc.).
  • To decline the knowledge of international arbitration practitioners (drafting clauses, briefs, pleadings, evidence, examinations and cross-examinations, establishing the quantum of damages, etc.).
  • To understand the functioning and distinctive features of the main arbitration centres and their rules.

Involving academics and practitioners specialised in international arbitration, but also in the various specialized fields of dispute before arbitral tribunals, the training is based on the richness of Paris as one of the most prominent international arbitration venues, internationally recognized as such. Its aim is to train students in the demanding realities of international arbitration law and practice, thanks to the most renowned academics and practitioners.
