CELI and the Student Community
Leicester students are actively involved in CELI activities and are an important part of CELI. CELI provides postgraduate research students with: a forum in the Law School to meet and exchange ideas with fellow students and established academics; opportunities to present and discuss their work and to get involved with the academic community and be exposed to cutting-edge research and the research culture in academia within and beyond the Leicester Law School.
LLM students attend and participate in CELI events with the opportunity to meet fellow students outside the class setting and to get involved with the research community of the Law School. Those considering a postgraduate research degree find early involvement in a vibrant research community particularly valuable.
Students benefit from the strong link between research and teaching in the Law School which has a strong tradition in research-led teaching across a wide range of European and International Law courses.
