George and the ICLS team has been the key to my success with the University of London. The tutors at this center provide continuous guidance and support throughout the year. However, even after graduating the journey does not end. ICLS, being an accredited institution, was able to assist me by providing a reference letter for my LL.M. The support, tutoring, and information you obtain with ICLS fills in the gap of every external student.Peter Obiefuna PhD, LLB 2016 Graduate University of London International ProgrammesICLS helped me cross the finish line. ICLS is unique. ICLS has an incredible support system in place to tutor and prepare students to succeed at the rigorous study of law.

With the support coming from many directions, ICLS helped my confidence such that I could advance successfully to my legal education and cross the finish line. I am eternally grateful to Dr. Pappas and his team of professors.Irma Nyack, BSN., LL.B (Hons). MBA 2016 Graduate University of London International ProgrammesI would like to thank George Pappas and all the Professors from ICLS in being instrumental in providing me with the structure, support and one-to-one teaching that enabled me to obtain my LL.B from the University of London.Rico Tatangelo B.A. (Hons.), LL.B (Hons.) 2016 Graduate University of London International ProgrammesPursuing an LLB degree at the University of London External Programme was one of the best career decisions I ever made and joining the ICLS was critical for being successful in the Programme. ICLS helped me stay on track on my studies during the year, clarified and complement the UoL’s study material and most importantly provided one on one feedback throughout the year. The mock exams were a great key tool to help me assess how well prepared I was for the annual exams. The program offered an opportunity to clarify questions and interact with peers. I couldn’t have done it without them.Analia Castelo, LL.B (Hons) Senior Director Tax - Choice Hotels International, Inc. 2016 Graduate Universitiy of London International ProgrammesThe University of London LL.B program is challenging an demanding. ICLS team has given me the edge to earn my LL.B degree. Thank you Dr. Pappas for always being available when I needed you. I am forever grateful.Ken Aboutaam, LL.B. (Hons.), RCIC 2016 Graduate University of London International ProgrammesIn my view, law school is a challenging undertaking. The International Center for Legal Studies (ICLS) gives students the benefit of having access to tutors who can answer questions and clarify difficult concepts. ICLS also provides monthly assignments and two mock exams per course to help students refine their legal writing skills. I would recommend ICLS to any student who wants to study law with the University of London and believes that they would benefit from the assistance and guidance which is offered by ICLS.Joseph Tumini, LL.B. (Hon.) 2016 Graduate University of London International ProgrammesI thank ICLS very much for initially introducing me to this program; but specifically I like to thank Mr. George Pappas, for always being available to challenge me, advice as well as steering me in the right directions towards achieving my goal of completing this law degree.
Of equal importance, is the fact that he has always been available and willing to counsel me on what step(s) I need to take toward registration for my bar examination...Mr. Pappas has really been an invaluable resource, every step of the way, and I can’t thank him enough. The University of London International Programmes, is lucky to have someone who sincerely cares for the students.
Thanks again for the opportunity to accomplish this life-long dream through your institution.and two mock exams per course to help students refine their legal writing skills. I would recommend ICLS to any student who wants to study law with the University of London and believes that they would benefit from the assistance and guidance which is offered by ICLS.Henry Halle LL.B (Hons) University of London LL.B. Graduate 2014The University of London Law Degree is a difficult degree to obtain. It is even more difficult doing it externally. The external student does not have the benefits that an internal atmosphere provides. In addition, the external student usually has other life priorities such as family, full time employment etc. Therefore, from my research, I found that generally internal students score higher than external students. Mr. Pappas and ICLS provided me with the internal atmosphere that I needed to be successful. At times I felt lost, at times I questioned my abilities and other times I wanted to quit. Each and every time I felt those emotions, Mr. Pappas was there to motivate and charge my battery to keep going. The UOL degree is a challenge, but ICLS will provide the tools to not only be successful but to compete and score as well as the students internally in London. Thank you Mr. Pappas.Sheldon Weeks, LL.B. (Hons) University of London (Honours) LL.B. Graduate 2013Getting a University of London law degree is an amazing feeling. Although it can be done, you must be prepared for a lot of hard work and time commitment to your studies. Studying alone without help, trying to comprehend thousands of cases and navigate through the mountains of documents can seem like an overwhelming task.
The best decision I ever made, in addition to studying Law with the University of London International Programmme, was studying with the International Center for Legal studies. I am not able to express in words alone my deep appreciation for all the help and guidance they’ve given me. Not only were they sincerely trying to help me every step of the way, but they have stood by me even after I no longer required their services. This is what sets ICLS apart from all other tutoring companies; the ongoing commitment to their students' success. To know that I have ICLS in my corner even after I received my degree is an empowering feeling. I sincerely wish to thank George and Ellen for being there when I needed them. If any student is considering using a tutoring company for your law studies, I highly recommend ICLS to help you be successful. Their support is priceless. If any prospective student would like to speak to me directly on my experience with ICLS, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks again for your continued support ICLS.Dominic Cervini, Barrister & Solicitor (Canada) University of London LL.B (Honors) and ICLS Graduate 2012Through 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!Alexx Allen, LL.B (Hons) - Chattanooga, TN USA 2012 ICLS and UoL LL.B. GraduateIt was my dream to read law but at the time, as a young Graduate from the University of Ghana, l was convinced working as an Army Officer was key to the future. After accomplishing my initial dream and earning a Presidential Commission, my pursuit for knowledge continued alongside my military career which enabled me to earn an MBA from Edinburgh Business School (Scotland) and Membership of Chartered Institute (MCIPS) in the UK. When my law interest resurfaced, University of London International Programmes without doubt came up as the ideal but after initial attempt to go solo, l realized things were more complicated (confirming George Pappas' advise) than l initially thought and I needed support. Luckily for me, all my requirements were met with the ICLS package and their committed team of professionals made it possible for me to achieve success whilst studying (as well as working) in the challenging environment in Afghanistan. I'm sure it would have been difficult to achieve this without ICLS' support. Thanks to all, great team of professionals and motivators.Emmanuel Ankrah, LL.B. (Hons) UOL LL.B. & ICLS Graduate 2011 Herat, AfghanistanWhen I registered with ICLS, I had no idea what was in store for me, but the decision to join was priceless. I have been extremely happy with the program. Not only does one have ownership and autonomy over your study but more importantly, ICLS' commitment in providing quality support in line with UOL's LLB subjects, great student resources and continuous feedback from Mr. George Pappas and the ICLS' staff. Great opportunity to achieve a solid honours degree in Law from a reputable institution. Thanks ICLSPhyllis Djamson LL.B. (Hons) UOL LL.B. & ICLS Graduate 2011I just want to tell you how much I appreciate your guidance in leading me out of the maze of study, one step at a time, throughout my three years with ICLS. ICLS is especially helpful to the students like me who have a job in the day time. If I studied on my own, without the help from you and ICLS tutors, I might have died in the riddle of legal theory.Dominic Suen, LL.B. (Hons) UOL LL.B. & ICLS Graduate 2011 ICLS enabled me to tackle the formidable task of passing the University of London law exams by providing not only an organized study plan, but the inspiration to develop my own tools to pass. I want to thank all my tutors and especially George Pappas, whose considerable effort was instrumental throughout, answering all my questions, creating an environment closely resembling that of having a private tutor.
Therefore, ICLS can provide all the advantages of a university without all the disadvantages of a university, such as attending while working full time.Judy Bessel, LL.B. (Hons) UOL LL.B. & ICLS Graduate 2010 I began studying for the LLB degree in 2006 at an institution in London. I was dissatisfied with the quality of education I received and decided to continue my studies with ICLS. The online lectures, course notes, feedback to monthly assignments and support offered by Mr. Pappas along with the tutors was unmatched. Further the staff at ICLS encouraged open dialogue thus creating an environment where students can pose questions and have answers to those questions in a timely manner.
The ICLS provides all the tools, resources, and feedback that students require in order to successfully complete the LLB degree. It is the task and responsibility of the student to take advantage of what is being offered and to work hard at achieving their goal.
Studying for the LLB was a challenging yet very rewarding experience and I truly believe that my success was due to the continuous guidance and support received from the staff at ICLS. Daniela Algieri, LL.B. (Hons) UOL LL.B. & ICLS Graduate 2009 I signed up for ICLS tutorial service for my final two years of my UoL LLB program. The experience had been fantastic. The ICLS program is designed to keep you on track with your studies, and its lecturers provide valuable insights on the LLB syllabus. Assignments and mock exams, and the feedback thereon, were extremely helpful in exam preparation.
As a busy professional working at an international accounting firm, it was often difficult to balance work and studying for a LLB degree, so it was fortunate that George Pappas and his team go out of their way to ensure that I was keeping up and was making the best use of the ICLS program. With their help, I was able to obtain the LLB degree with Second Class Honours. Thank you ICLS.Kenneth Keung LL.B. (Hons) UOL LL.B. & ICLS Graduate 2009 Canada I have had the opportunity to be a part of ICLS. I am proud to have worked closely with Mr. Pappas and his team. I feel that I was able to achieve my high grades due to the materials provided by the instructors for each of the courses I took. I am also very grateful to Mr. Pappas for always being there to answer any question I had. ICLS is an excellent institution that every student should be a part of.Ayesha Hussain, Final Year UOL LL.B. Student 2010 I successfully passed my exams, I could not have done it without ICLS.Raj Vijan, 2009 LL.B. Graduate
With the demands of work and family responsibilities, distance learning is challenging. However, I am pleased to have been a student of ICLS and express my sincere thanks to George Pappas and his team of tutors for their assistance, counseling, recommendations and going beyond the call of duty to ensure the student receives assistance to pass the University of London examinations and to seek possible placement in a bar or solicitor school.Edward Ball 2009 University of London LL.B. & ICLS Graduate (Bermuda)I signed up for ICLS tutorial service for my final two years of my UoL LLB program.

(Hons) UOL LL.B. & ICLS Graduate 2009 Canada There was always someone in your programme readily and competently available to allay my fears and address my concerns and questions. The fear of the unknown has always been a major limiting factor to one's ability, so that once I realized I was not alone and that my concerns were being adequately and readily addressed, my confidence soared and saw me right through the programmeUniversity of London and ICLS Graduate Mahandra Jobanputra being congratulated by ICLS Dir. George Pappas (May 2008)Once again, the essays that I had already written for ICLS, and the material covered in your courses, served me well. I am consistently finding that points emphasized by my ICLS tutors are showing up in the exams. But apart from course content and the excellent feedback from the tutors, I think the most important thing that ICLS has provided me with is structure. As you well know, it is very difficult to fit a full course load into a life that is already rich with the commitments of family and full-time work. ICLS provides me with the short-term, interim deadlines I need to pace myself more evenly over the school year. I look forward to completing the last year of my degree with you!Dr. Robert Reddoch, ICLS Student, LL.B. Hon celebrates his University of London graduation with his wife Stephanie at the Barbican Center, London, March 16, 2007.
