"Being in the legal heart of one of the world's global capitals, and adopting a comparative approach, the CTLS is in a unique position to address some of the most pressing issues of the modern era. As the world further globalises, it will become increasingly important for law students to have an understanding of other legal systems and transnational legal issues. The CTLS has given me a more comprehensive education, one relevant to the twenty-first century. I would highly recommend the CTLS to any law student eager not only to explore fascinating legal issues but also to further a career in international or transnational law and to forge exceptional friendships."

Student Housing

The CTLS has identified a convenient student housing option in central London.

There are 10 such rooms reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Additional rooms beyond the first 10 may be available upon request, but there is no guarantee.

Located on St. John Street, the residence is situated in the cosmopolitan area of Clerkenwell. Liberty House has excellent transport links, being walking distance to Angel, Farringdon, Barbican and Old Street tube stations. Liberty House's purpose-built design offers state of the art amenities in an independent environment.
