Founded in 2014, the Transnational Law Institute (TLI) at The Dickson Poon School of Law is an interdisciplinary research and teaching centre with a particular focus on transnational and comparative law, legal theory and jurisprudence, collaborative research and legal education.

The Transnational Law Institute functions as a catalyst for border-crossing research and teaching collaboration in a wide range of fields - ranging from company law to family law, from human rights to refugee and immigration law, from legal sociology to transnational commercial arbitration. Encompassing legal fields normally associated with public law, transnational law builds bridges between public and private, domestic and international law.

The Institute hosts a number of research and teaching initiatives, including the first Transnational Law LLM, which has been welcoming students since 2014. For more information on the Transnational Law LLM and how to apply, visit King’s Online Prospectus.

Outside of the Centre, the King's Forum on International Dispute Resolution offers a Fellowship opportunity that may be of interest to students. Discover more below about the one year fellowship at the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague, the Netherlands.

Fellowship at the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA)

The King’s Forum on International Dispute Resolution is pleased to announce that it will offer a one year fellowship at the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) in The Hague.

The fellowship offers recent law graduates of The Dickson Poon School of Law an extraordinary opportunity to start a career in international dispute resolution. King’s College London joins a select group of universities offering their recent graduates such an opportunity.

The PCA is an intergovernmental organisation tasked with facilitating arbitration and other modes of dispute resolution between States, State entities, intergovernmental organisations, and private parties.

Established by treaty in 1899, today the PCA enjoys the membership of 118 States, has seen its caseload grow exponentially through recent years, and is currently administering over 100 cases.
