Centre for Commercial Law Studies

Alumni and Friends of CCLS

Welcome to the CCLS alumni web pages 

CCLS is recognised as one of the world’s leading academic institutions for the study of commercial law. Our alumni number some of the most knowledgeable postgraduates working in commercial law today. Links with clients and customers are strengthened by demonstrating commitment to excellence and best practice in a chosen area of commercial activity.

We are in touch with over 17,000 alumni who have studied at CCLS, either in London, Paris or Piraeus. We are keen to connect and keep in contact with all former students who have studied at CCLS.

The Alumni and Friends of CCLS, with the Advisory Council as its governing body, is committed to being a strong, visible organisation responsible for planning and promoting programs and activities that support alumni and CCLS.

Celebrating our 40th Anniversary!

In 2020 CCLS will be celebrating 40 years.   

  • There will be a special 40th anniversary event held at the Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn on Thursday 23rd April 2020.
  • There will be other events and reunions held across the globe. If you would like to get involved with organising a celebration event more locally to you, get in touch. We will be able to promote it on your behalf to other alumni.
  • In the Spring issue of the Alumni Bulletin you will be able to read an interview with Sir Roy Goode who set up the CCLS.

 Ian Walden, Director, Centre for Commercial Law Studies says:

“We are very excited as we approach 2020 and the celebration of 40 years of the Centre for Commercial Law Studies. I hope we see many of you over the coming year, either in London or overseas, as we celebrate the achievements of CCLS and our alumni and look forward to the next 40 years of cutting edge research, teaching and impact in commercial law.”
