We are grateful to the AFJE for its long-standing support of an annual scholarship for an LLM student.

We work closely with the Law School of the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, including in the delivery of a shared, bilingual Double LLM in International Business Law, and French and European Law.
We are keen to promote student interaction and exchange through shared events and other activities.
ELSA (The European Law Students’ Association) is the world’s largest law students’ association; it is comprised of more than 41,000 members across the globe including students and recent graduates who are interested in academic and personal excellence in addition to their studies at their universities.
The Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Paris, ESCP Europe, is one of the world’s oldest business schools and we are delighted to be working with them on a number of collaborative projects. The projects aim to combine the expertise of the two institutes from the two disciplines of commercial law and business management, providing students with an opportunity to advance their career prospects through this entwined knowledge and these innovative channels. All projects will see students studying in both Paris and London, widening their international perspective, and career and networking opportunities.

CCLS Paris LLM students partaking in the Lazareff Le Bars academic internship
Lazareff Le Bars law firm offers academic internships to the students of the Queen Mary LLM programmes. The internships allow the students to participate in the law firm’s professional, academic and pro bono projects, and gives them access to the law firm’s documentary resources, while also providing them with financial support for their studies.
Learn more about the Lazareff Le Bars internship opportunities.
By virtue of our partnership with the Ecole de Formation professionnelle des Barreaux de la Cour d'Appel de Paris (EFB), students are able to study towards an LLM with Queen Mary in Paris, in parallel with their training at the Bar School. Further details are provided here.
Further, CCLS arranges a variety of seminars and events in Paris each year, some of which are open to practitioners and can be credited as “formation continue” with the Paris Bar.
