In 2012 the University of Cambridge, a world-renowned centre of academic excellence in teaching and research, launched an exciting new Masters degree in Corporate Law (the MCL). This course, which offers students the opportunity to engage in detailed study of the legal and regulatory framework within which companies are governed and financed, is now a core component of the academic curriculum which the Cambridge Law Faculty offers.
The MCL, a full-time nine-month programme, is taught by the Cambridge Law Faculty's team of corporate lawyers, widely recognised as one of the strongest in the corporate law field, as well as a distinguished group of external instructors. The MCL, the first entirely new degree in Law to be established by Cambridge University since the nineteenth century, has been designed to combine practical insights with academic and theoretical rigour. It is therefore an ideal graduate programme both for those wishing to strengthen their credentials as business lawyers, and for those who have a career in the academic or regulatory sectors in mind.
Read on to find out more about the exciting programme Cambridge University's MCL offers, and how you can become a part of it.
Due to COVID-19 the manner the MCL operated substantially differently from normal in 2020-21. We are anticipating that the course will operate along largely normal lines in 2021-22 and are optimistic that the course will be run in the same manner it traditionally has in 2022-23. Correspondingly, the main body of this website has not been amended substantively to reflect COVID-19-specific adjustments. To the extent that adjustments are necessary, those to whom offers of admission are extended will be kept fully up-to-date.
