Academic Requirements

In order to maintain a low student-faculty ratio, we seek to enroll no more than 40 students each year. The selection process is highly competitive and based upon the strengths of each individual record of academic and or professional achievement in general, and in the field of dispute settlement in particular, if applicable.

To be considered for the program, applicants must have received, or expect to receive by the summer of 2017, at least a first complete law degree (such as a Bologna Master degree, a J.D. or an LL.B.).

The MIDS may consider candidates from other academic areas who have at least a Master degree or its recognized equivalent. These applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis to determine whether or not they can be considered for admission. These candidates may submit an explanation or a description of their preparation for success in the MIDS curriculum.
