Why did you choose study at the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS)?
While preparing my LLM application, I received very helpful reviews and suggestions regarding CCLS. As a result, after receiving admission offers from three other Russel-group universities, I chose CCLS for it’s reputation in my chosen field of LLM, and especially for it’s approach towards teaching law (bridging academia and practice).
What was your favourite memory as a CCLS student?
I had a lot of good memories at CCLS, from the induction program at Cumberland Lodge, attending lectures from leading academics and practitioners, and participating in extra-curricular activities. The highlight would have been the moment where I had to simplify and 'teach' corporate tax and IP related complexities to young school kids in East London, as part of the program.
Why do you think prospective students should study at CCLS?
Those who are keen to learn about cutting-edge areas of the law with a blend of practice and academia should attend CCLS. Before making the final decision, prospective students should consider the diversity of the CCLS students and academics, the quality of teaching, research and support it provides, the location of the school (at the heart of Legal London), and the broad base of alumni.
