Centre for Law & Business

A successor institution to the former Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS), the new EW Barker Centre for Law & Business seeks to enhance and promote research and educational opportunities for faculty, students, legal practitioners and business executives who share a common interest in the fields of Law, Business and Economics.
