A Russell Group member, QMUL teaches and researches across a wide range of subjects in the humanities, social sciences, law, medicine and dentistry, and science and engineering.

The School of Law is consistently ranked in the top 10 UK Law Schools. Its Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS), founded in 1980, promotes systematic study of national and international commercial law and enjoys international renown for a number of its programmes including ICT and media law. CCLS is also a dedicated postgraduate centre offering LLM, MSc, Diploma and Certificate programmes in the various aspects of commercial law, as well as having 90 registered research students on its PhD programme. Members of academic staff are drawn from all parts of the world.

With its base in Lincoln’s Inn Fields, CCLS is not only the heart of legal London, but is also just a stone’s throw from London’s tech-city, one of the world’s most vibrant start-up communities. A particular feature of our research and teaching is the participation of leading lawyers working in the finance centres of the City. Their cutting edge practical experience, combined with the academic credentials of our faculty, allow us to create a superbly balanced educational programme.
