The Law Academy of the UCLan Cyprus School of Law is situated at the crossroads of three continents and at the inter-section of the Commonwealth, the Council of Europe and the European Union. With these realities very much in mind, the Law Academy seeks to supplement the teaching and research activities of the distinctive Anglo-Cypriot university within which it is situated. It does so by providing continuing professional development courses and other forms of executive education aimed at the private and public sectors of the Republic of Cyprus, the Eastern Mediterranean, the Middle East, South-East Europe, the United Kingdom and the wider world.
For obvious reasons, the Law Academy is primarily dedicated to ethical, legal, professional, regulatory and other issues of concern to members of the legal profession. However, the activities and thematic ambit of the Law Academy will also be of interest to members of other professions and persons working in various fields.
In alphabetical order, these include but are certainly not limited to academics, accountants, bankers, businesspersons, civil servants, diplomats, law enforcement officers, members of the armed forces, members of the medical profession and members of other professions such as police officers.
The Law Academy not only draws upon the expertise of the academic staff of UCLan Cyprus. It also draws upon outside experts and a growing network of UCLan Cyprus alumni within and beyond the legal profession.
The Law Academy benefits from the status of the School of Law as a CPD provided, accredited by the Cyprus Bar Association, according to Κ.Δ.Π 386/2017 (http://www.cylaw.org/KDP/data/2017_1_386.pdf)
For these reasons, the Law Academy is in harmony with two of the strategic aims of UCLan Cyprus. One is to build a leading modern university with a global reach at the crossroads of three continents. Another is to facilitate engagements within the Republic of Cyprus and also within the wider world.
