In 1991, the Centre for Professional Studies commenced classes for the Entrance Examination to the Sri Lanka Law College. Within a short time, this programme became well respected attracting a large number of students.It was in building upon such success sustained over the years, that CfPS Law School commenced lectures for the LLB, recognised by the University of London, in 2007. The CfPS Law School has a history of teaching law for over 30 years where we have demonstrated excellence in teaching.

Welcome from the Institution

Since its inception in 1991, CfPS Law School has been instrumental in helping thousands of students realise their dream of studying law and entering the legal profession. 

In 2007, we began offering the Bachelor of Laws Degree from the University of London, aiming to provide an academically rigorous law degree with an international perspective right here in Sri Lanka. Today, we are proud to be a Recognised Centre of University of London’s Bachelor of Laws Degree and the Certificate of Higher Education in Common Law.

Our faculty members bring years of teaching and practical experience to the classroom, enriching the learning environment with their legal knowledge and courtroom experiences.

At CfPS Law School, we foster a collegial environment that encourages students to engage in extra-curricular activities alongside their studies. We also facilitate internships and court visits to provide students with practical legal exposure.

“When I joined the CfPS Law School in 2019, I was given a 100% scholarship on my tuition fee. In 2022, I returned their favour by becoming the only Sri Lankan student to secure a first class honours LLB degree from the University of London whilst being employed. The CfPS Law School has an eminent lecture panel of lectures that has consistently produced good results. I have no hesitation in recommending the University of London LLB programme and the CfPS Law School to all those who want to pursue a career in law.”

“Being named this year's valedictorian at the 2024 Graduation Ceremony of CfPS Law School is an honour beyond words. I owe a debt of gratitude to the exceptional academic and non-academic staff who tirelessly dedicated themselves to providing us with the best education, even amidst unprecedented challenges. Completing the LLB programme amidst a global pandemic and economic crisis was no small feat, yet we persevered. Our LLB journey symbolises our resilience and determination. Thank you, CfPS Law School and University of London, for shaping us into the leaders of tomorrow.”
