The Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) at Queen Mary University of London is to collaborate with the Seven Pillars Institute for Global Finance and Ethics (SPI) on ethics, law and regulation in finance. The aim of the collaboration is to foster a dialogue on important ethical policy issues affecting the financial services industry.
