The core associate/occasional attendee programme is aimed at those who may well already be working within the profession, but wish to update their knowledge in specific areas.

The programme is aimed at those who wish to attend one or two modules, simply for information purposes. There is no examination criteria and no academic credits awarded

Modules are offered across the LLM, MSc Law and Finance and Diploma programmes, and are accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Bar Standards Board and confer CPD points. Occasional, non-award seeking students who register for one or two modules can obtain CPD points through attendance of classes.

CCLS-Associate Programmes in Commercial Law (CCLS-APCL)

The CCLS-Associate Programmes in Commercial Law (CCLS-APCL) programme allows students to study at CCLS for one or two semesters as part of their home institutions requirements for international study. Associate Students can choose to take between one and six modules at postgraduate level taught within the Centre for Commercial Law Studies.  

Attendees are fully registered students with access to all CCLS events and facilities of the University.

Students attending the programme would usually undertake an assessment by way of a 5,000 word essay per module attended, submitted at the end of the study period. The results are then forwarded to your home institution for final consideration. We will work in unison with your home institution to meet any specific assessment requirements during your attendance of the CCLS-APCL programme.
