Queen Mary University of London

At Queen Mary University of London, we believe that a diversity of ideas helps us achieve the previously unthinkable.

In 1980, Sir Roy Goode decided to create an environment where practising commercial lawyers and those from academia could meet and exchange ideas. His vision was that by bringing together these different perspectives, we would create better outcomes. And so the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) was born.

It’s an innovation that continues to bear results in teaching and research. One example is the Centre’s research on cloud computing being undertaken by its Institute of Computer and Communications Law – a rigorous academic undertaking, funded by industry to address a systemic challenge that has far-reaching consequences for providers of cloud services, as well as their users, whether individual, corporate or public sector.

By bringing academia and practice together, CCLS has become a world leader in commercial law research. Proof positive that a diversity of ideas fosters academic excellence and helps us achieve the previously unthinkable.
