SiLS LL.M. International Commercial Law and Dispute Resolution

SiLS moves to Bond University: updated information

We are happy to announce that as of January 2018, Swiss International Law School (SiLS) will be collaborating with the Faculty of Law at the renowned Bond University, Gold Coast, Australia to offer a Master of Laws (LLM) in International Commercial Law and Dispute Resolution. This new Bond-SiLS LLM will continue to be offered entirely online, in an interactive manner, and using an intercultural and innovative teaching approach, while classes will remain small.

The new combined LLM program International Commercial Law and Dispute Resolution features all four current SiLS online modules (Sales and Transport Law, Corporate Law, Dispute Resolution, Intellectual Property Law), each converted into a 20 CP Bond subject. Feel free to combine our online courses with onsite studies at the Gold Coast campus in Australia, and study full time (2 semesters) or part time (3-4 semesters). For example, you may complete 40 CP online and 40 CP on campus – or other individual combinations, depending on your personal needs and preferences. Online and onsite courses start in January 2018. You may also start in May or September.

Be among the first to apply for this new combined Master of Laws program. Just send us a message via email to, and we will be happy to get you in touch with Bond.
