Combine an exiting city and an exiting area of law: The Law Faculty of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin offers a one-year full-time graduate degree program in International Dispute Resolution (IDR), with a strong emphasis on international commercial arbitration. Professor Gerhard Wagner is the master mind behind this degree, which, as far as I can see, is unique in Germany. The program is open to law graduates from jurisdictions around the world.

More information regarding the program can be found here.
