The aim of CCLFR is to disseminate the work of academics and legal practitioners who focus in the field of commercial law and financial regulation, providing a theoretical and empirical coverage and a thought-provoking analysis of the topics in the field. We aim to provide a forum for discussion of today's most complex topics in commercial law and financial regulation from both, a policy and a market oriented approach. You can view a list of our current research projects, high-quality publications and our contributions to seminars and research events.

With our range of expertise in the area of commercial law and the diversity of choice for postgraduate researchers we have developed one of the leading programmes for PhD research in the UK. For information and how to apply, you can visit our webpages on postgraduate research.

We are an inclusive research community and invite ideas that can constitute the basis of innovative and ground-breaking research, and we also consider funded research projects tailored to the funder's needs.

The CCLFR welcomes and receives papers from practitioners and academics around the world. Submissions are welcomed at any time via e-mail in Microsoft Word or Adobe Acrobat. Upon receipt of the submission, the executive directors will notify the author via email that the article has been received. In approximately three weeks time-depending on the volume of submissions-the author will receive a confirmation of whether the working paper has been accepted for inclusion in the Research portal of the CCLFR. If the working paper is accepted for publication, the author will have to sign a licensing agreement enabling International CCLFR to publish his/her work.
