School of Law
University of Central Lancashire Cyprus
The School of Law at UCLan Cyprus, is part of the first overseas campus of a British University, the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan). Although very recently established, the School of Law at UCLan Cyprus has been at the forefront of legal education and research in Cyprus and abroad, since 2012. The School provides a full-range of academic and scholarly law courses including an internationally and locally accredited Bachelor of Laws degree (LLB), a Master of Laws course (LLM) with five specialist paths (International Energy Law, EU Law, Law and International Security, International Business Law, and Financial and Commercial Law), a Master of Laws (LLM) course in International Business Law and one in Financial and Commercial Law. The School of Law is currently expanding its already successful PhD programmes and post-doc population and is committed to growing the legal research culture and environment on the island and beyond, in a multi-disciplinary and innovative setting.
The School of Law also ventures beyond the realm of law into the closely related field of international relations. Cyprus has much to contribute in the field of international relations, both in terms of experience and expertise, illustrated by its favourable geopolitical position, good diplomatic relations with a range of, often antagonistic (with each other), partners; and, the opportunity to play a central role in the stabilisation of a long-troubled region.
From 2014 until 2017 the School was home to the Jean Monnet Module FEcoGov funded by the EU under the Erasmus+ Programme 2014-2020, to research aspects of Financial and Economic Governance in the EU which has also been selected as a success story in the Erasmus+ Project Results Platform following a rigorous selection process. Since 2017, the School works closely with a non-profit organisation called Interdisciplinary Centre for Law, Alternative and Innovative Methods (‘ICLAIM’) on projects of social entrepreneurship in full collaboration with academics, students and professionals.
The Law School at UCLan Cyprus has become, within a very short space of time, one of the leading institutions for legal teaching, research and knowledge transfer in the wider region. Its courses are designed to satisfy the requirements of the local professional market, whilst retaining the necessary international focus demanded of an internationally top-ranked Law School. Its research and knowledge transfer activities are of international standards and recognised as such. It engages in major European projects including Erasmus+ and Horizon 2020.
