The CfPS Law School is a Registered Centre of the University of London and it will commence an intake on August 2018 for the LL.B.

This degree will enable students to enter Sri Lanka Law College and to do their Attorneys-at-Law exams. Certificate in Higher Education in the Common Law (HE.CL) is for students, who do not meet the entry requirement for the LL.B degree, because they are just after O/L, are pending A/Level results or because their A/L grades do not meet the entry requirements.
