A milestone year for the Hellenic Management Centre was 2013, when the postgraduate programme of the prestigious Centre for Commercial law Studies (CCLS) of the Queen Mary University of London, LLM in International Shipping Law (Piraeus, Greece), was launched in Greece.

Since then, HMC represents in Greece one of the UK’s leading research institutions, Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) and the Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS).


The School of Law at Queen Mary University of London has once again been ranked 3rd in the UK and 1st in London by The Guardian University Guide.

The Centre for Commercial Law Studies (CCLS) within the School of Law at Queen Mary University of London specializes in the knowledge and skills in commercial law that can be placed at the service of government, public bodies, overseas institutions, the legal profession, industry and commerce.

The Centre was created in 1980 by Sir Roy Goode. Over the last thirty-five years, CCLS has developed an in-depth expertise in specific areas of commercial law. Having commenced with banking and finance and intellectual property law, CCLS expanded to cover arbitration, information technology, new technologies, media, international economic law, international institutions, tax, development and corporate governance. The Centre has recently developed insurance, energy and shipping law specialisms.

CCLS’s faculty members are leading experts in almost all areas of law and have a long-established reputation for providing high-quality teaching and internationally renowned research, with invaluable contributions from respected practitioners and industry experts.

This collaboration with QMUL gives you the opportunity to be taught by and network with some of the world’s top legal minds. It offers a diverse range of legal subjects with an emphasis on developing practical skills to prepare you for your career.

The development of this new LLM in International Shipping Law (Piraeus, Greece) by QMUL and HMC further enhances the importance of professional development within the shipping professionals.
