The Faculty of Law’s Centre for Corporate and Commercial Law (known as the ‘3CL’) provides the focal point for members of the Faculty of Law with research interests in the fields of corporate law and commercial law, and in related areas including corporate governance, corporate finance, insurance law and insolvency. The 3CL organises events to disseminate research and to foster dialogue on important, topical legal issues and has hosted numerous conferences, lectures and seminars involving distinguished academics, judges and legal practitioners. The 3CL holds regular lunchtime seminars during the academic year which MCL students are encouraged to attend.
The 3CL is one of a number of research centres operating under Law Faculty auspices. Others include the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law, the Centre for Criminal Justice, the Centre for European Legal Studies, the Centre for Intellectual Property and Information Law, the Centre for Law, Medicine and Life Sciences, the Cambridge Private Law Centre, the Centre for Public Law and the Centre for Tax Law. The Faculty is also associated with Cambridge Finance, which coordinates programmes of research and study in all areas of finance across the University; and with the Centre for Business Research, which has generated numerous widely cited publications dealing with corporate governance and aspects of corporate law.
