The Online LLM

The Online LLM

Courses are taught using asynchronous electronic education, which means that the students access the course lectures on the Web through a link provided by the school. There are different applications that can be used to support different models of online learning. The asynchronous method utilizes tools such as threaded discussion boards, email, small group discussions and chat rooms, which allow users to participate at their convenience. This means that class attendance at a set time is not required. Instead, students can learn anytime and anywhere they have access to a computer and the Internet. Attendance is monitored by the students’ participation on the threaded discussion board.

Even though ADR methods have helped parties resolve disputes without long and costly litigation, costs associated with conventional ADR approaches can still inhibit parties from asserting their rights.
