Learning and teaching

Teaching at CCLS Paris is delivered by our expert CCLS academic team, as well as guest lectures from leading experts and practitioners, many of whom act as advisers to governments, industry, regulatory authorities and NGOs, both nationally and internationally.

Your modules will be taught in intensive blocks offered in the daytime, evening or on occasional Saturdays, which are spread throughout the academic year, allowing you to adapt your programme to your personal study plan or professional or other commitments.

Our students benefit from smaller class sizes, which allow for greater interaction, meaningful participation and more individual attention from academic and professional services staff.


CCLS Paris is housed at the University of London Institute in Paris (ULIP) ULIP, in the 7th arrondissement, just across the river from the heart of legal Paris, and moments from some of the city’s cultural highlights.
