Course Description

This series of courses are online seminars that offer a total of 18 verified CPD points by the Cyprus Bar Association.


In an increasingly competitive global and commercial environment, new to-professional lawyers are encouraged to be ‘commercially focused’ and ‘practice ready’ with the ability to apply the law to current legal, business and economic issues.


This course aims to bridge the gap between academic theory and the realities of practising the law, by providing students with the unique opportunity to apply commercial legal knowledge to a hypothetical deal.


The course will explore the role of the commercial lawyer in structuring and implementing deals, creating value, managing risks and delivering solutions in this complex legal and regulatory environment.


Via a combination of lectures and seminar workshops, students will navigate various stages of a corporate transaction, from receiving client instructions to drafting and negotiating contracts, assessing risks, advising clients and guiding the transaction through to completion.


Academic knowledge, theory and critical analysis will be applied in a practical setting, making lawyers more employable and experienced in the practice of law.


This corporate law simulation series is made up of 3 modules:


-  The start-up business simulation clinic.

-  The share sale and purchase simulation clinic

-  The business and asset acquisitions clinic


You can choose to register for one module or for all three modules. Depending on your experience and the area of law that you are interested in.
