Centre for Commercial Law and Financial Regulation

Gerard McMeelExecutive Director
Professor Gerard McMeel QC

The Centre for Commercial Law and Financial Regulation was founded by the School of Law and ICMA Centre in 2011, as a forum for stimulating and conducting research, and for disseminating knowledge on international commercial law and financial regulation. Our academic staff contribute regularly to policy development and law reform, by acting as consultants to governments, commissions and practitioners, and by engaging in debate through conferences and public fora.


From its creation a core part of CCLFR's mission has been to combine excellence in research with excellence in teaching. It is a leading centre for postgraduate studies in commercial law, providing a stimulating environment in which students benefit from learning from leading academics who regularly invite experienced practitioners to participate in their teaching provision. A focus on international, comparative and multi-disciplinary perspectives is a key characteristic of teaching within CCLFR, and its students have access to modules run not only by the School of Law, but also by ICMA, Henley Business School, and the Department of Economics.
