Centre for Commercial Law Studies

Our Law School is the home to our Centre for Commercial Law Studies, for our postgraduate commercial law programmes. Founded 1980, Sir Roy Goode decided to create an environment where practising commercial lawyers and those from academia could meet and exchange ideas. His vision was that by bringing together these different perspectives, we would create better outcomes. And so the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) was born.  Approaching 40 years of being at the forefront of specialist legal education, we are proud to equip legal professionals worldwide with the expertise, knowledge and skills that meet individual needs for career development.
