The Chancery Lane Institute for Professionals (‘CLIP’) is a dynamic new provider of legal education in Dubai – the first ever outside of the UK to deliver in-person teaching for the GDL, the LPC and now the QLTS.

We have recruited a first-class faculty comprising highly experienced Solicitors with years of experience in the field to teach on our courses.
