The Bachelor of Laws degree at Deakin University has been designed to integrate the study of legal theory with the elements of legal practice. The curriculum combines theoretical and practical training, and provides opportunities for students to take part in a number of practical legal skill exercises during the Bachelor of Laws degree. MLL030 Arbitration is the third of four compulsory dispute resolution tasks along with MLL010 Moot, MLL020 Mediation and MLL040 Witness Examination.
Arbitration is a hearing of the matter before an arbitrator and not a judge. All parties present their sides of a dispute to the independent third party (the arbitrator or panel of arbitrators) who has been given the authority to make a binding decision in relation to the dispute between the parties. The process of arbitration is therefore adversarial. Arbitration is considered a type of alternative dispute resolution.
In MLL030 Arbitration students work in teams to represent either the Claimant or Defendant to make submissions to an arbitrator in a Tribunal.
