The School of Law at Queen Mary has a long tradition of welcoming overseas students who wish to incorporate legal academic study at Queen Mary into their home institutions’ academic programmes, normally for one or two semesters.

Founded by Anna Morner in 1997, in collaboration with the universities of Stockholm, Gothenburg and Bergen, the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS), with its numerous experts in this area, led by Professor Rosa Lastra, offers an external programme in International Finance Law, offering law students the choice of a PG Certificate or PG Diploma in International Finance Law.
