Teach Law for ICLS
Dear Prospective ICLS Student:
for visiting our website and expressing your interest in earning a University of London law
degree with ICLS.
Registered Centre Status
In 2011 ICLS was
awarded Registered Centre Status by the University of London
International Programmes. ICLS' policies, staff, method of study,
financial standing, student performance and commitment were reviewed by the International Programmes.
have made the decision to earn a University of London law degree,
you should know that for over 150 years the University of London
International Programmes has been leading the world in offering people
like you the opportunity to advance your careers through distance learning.
too earned my University of London
International Programmes law degree. My degree was fully recognized by
Widener University School of Law in Wilmington, Delaware for purposes of
earning my LL.M. (Masters of Law) in Corporate Law & Finance [Widener
University School of Law is an American Bar Association (ABA) approved law
Shortly after earning my LL.M., I passed the North Carolina State bar
examination. Today, in addition to teaching English law for the
International Center for Legal Studies, I practice Immigration law, Criminal law,
Family law and Civil Litigation in my private legal practice. I practice
law not only in
North Carolina, but also Massachusetts, several U.S. District Courts, The
Cherokee Supreme Court (Eastern Band) and The U.S. Supreme Court.
My distance studies and
subsequent legal career are proof that you too can be admitted to the legal profession in the United
States (and many other countries) with a University of London
International Programmes degree in law.
Academic Support & Assessment
co-founded ICLS because when I studied for my University of London
International Programmes degree, there was a dearth of academic support. I had
to make enormous scarifies to earn my law degree, and I always wished
there were people who could "teach" and "assess" my work to the University
of London examination standard. I found that the challenges of earning a
degree under the International Programmes were far more demanding in
comparison to my
first degree experience at the London School of Economics as a full time
When I studied for my English law degree in the United States, I was
simultaneously maintaining a full-time career and supporting a family – no
I mention this to let you know that if I could do it, you can too;
however, I cannot accept credit for my own success. I had a secret; my
support network. My wife and children supported my decision and
provided the necessary foundation for me to complete my studies. You will need familial
support and determination. In the end, your degree will be the
culmination of a "team", or "group" effort. I assure you
that if you complete
the University of London International Programmes law degree you will
become transformed and the experience will make you far more qualified
compared to the traditional brick and mortar law graduate.
With the advent of the Internet, my vision to deliver the "London
experience" to University of London International Programmes students worldwide,
was realized 2001.
Today, ICLS has achieved an enormous first – successfully
building the first online and face-to-face law program based in North America for University
of London International Programmes students worldwide: utilizing lectures,
classes, essay assignments and individualized mentoring essential to
maximize each student's learning of the law.

In addition, ICLS also provides an
individual academic advisor for each student. I

Law degree Standard
University of London law programme is renowned and continues to
maintain it’s prestigious international reputation for academic excellence.

University Guide, the University of London law departments at the
London School of Economics (LSE), Kings College and University College (UCL)

departments in the UK. The International Programmes is derived from the
very same law departments and the academic standard and quality is identical.

"Through ICLS I was
able to accomplish what many struggle to do alone - get my LLB from UOL
International Programmes. The help and guidance I received from actual
University of London tutors was what made this possible. Anyone thinking about
pursuing a degree with UoL should consider ICLS. The inability to properly
answer exam questions is the most common cause of failure and ICLS provides what
the University cannot - feedback and criticism of writing technique when
attempting an examination question. The lectures are also an asset to anyone who
struggles to read and retain an abundance of reading material. Thanks to ICLS I
am now a UOL graduate, and couldn't be prouder!"

just wanted to say Thank You to you and your team for executing such a
productive weekend... Saturday was very intensive and by the end of the
writing session I felt confident in myself, as I learned the techniques only
ICLS could have taught. I now know what the examiners are looking for and most
of all I understand how to organize the vast information I have per subject. You
were organized, enthusiastic and addressed relevant issues. I am looking forward
