This Centre has developed from the role of City Law School in providing a full range of high quality legal education and training within the context of a growing, research active Law School.
The purpose is to enable academic researchers, professionally focused authors, legal practitioners and others to share expertise and to be able to do so in London, one of the most important legal centres in the world.
We believe that enabling practitioners and legal academics to work more closely together can provide substantial benefits, especially at a time of great change and development in legal practice.
The aim of the Centre is to promote the use of high quality academic work to support development and standards in legal professional practice and training. This is done through professionally focused research and writing and through a range of seminars, lectures and other activities in which practitioners and academics can share views on legal professional practice.
Some events are arranged for specific groups, but wherever appropriate events are open to City Law School staff and students and some events are open to the public.
