Swiss International Law School (SiLS)

Welcome to the homepage of the SiLS Association!

Founded in 2014, SiLS has had a mission to shaping the Global Lawyer and prepare law students as well as career professionals from different cultural and legal backgrounds for confident and ethical practice in International Commercial Law.

From 2015 until 2017, we have been offering the SiLS LL.M. program on a truly comparative basis. Entirely online, it was designed to give access to a cutting-edge level of higher education that for many might have been out of reach because of geographical distance, or work or family responsibilities.

Since 2018, SiLS is now collaborating with the Faculty of Law at the renowned Bond University, Gold Coast, Australia, to offer an online Master of Laws (LLM) International Commercial Law and Dispute Resolution. The new program is offered entirely online, too, and it features all former SiLS online courses converted into Bond subjects.

As founders of SiLS, we remain closely affiliated with the new LLM program at Bond University, and act as advisors to the Bond Law Faculty to developing new concepts and additional subjects.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the many people who have supported SiLS and enabled us to carry out our mission to such an extent. We are especially indebted to the dedicated and truly supportive team of Bond Law Faculty during the transitioning of the SiLS LL.M. to Bond University, first and foremost Dean Professor Nick JAMES, Assistant Professor and Program Coordinator of the online LLM Louise PARSONS, LLM, and Gary BRADY, Faculty Business Director.

It has been and still is an exciting experience, but there is still much work to be done. Stay connected to learn about the future developments!

Kind regards
