Leaving a Gift in Your Will

How can you help?

Leaving a gift in your Will to the Centre for Commercial Law Studies is possibly the greatest gift you can make during your lifetime and offers you the opportunity to invest in CCLS’s future scholarly research of international excellence, to contribute to the shaping of public and commercial policy, and to provide teaching of the highest quality at postgraduate level. 

The Director of the Centre for Commercial Law Studies and the CCLSL Advisory Council will ensure your bequest will provide the maximum benefit to CCLS. Your first consideration should be your family, but remembering CCLS also, enables you to merge your financial planning and charitable giving aspirations. Gifts of all sizes are greatly appreciated.

Can we help you?

Leaving a gift in your Will is a private matter but if the time is right for you and you would like to consider leaving CCLS a gift, you can speak to the Alumni and Development Team to:

  • find out more about how your gift can help future postgraduates and the development of CCLS;
  • discuss how you would like your gift to be used;
  • meet with us face to face, or talk on the phone.

 You can discuss in confidence if you are considering supporting CCLS in this way.
