Kent Law School is recognised as one of the leading law schools in the UK. It has an international reputation both for its research and for the high quality, innovative, critical and socio-legal education that it provides. It boasts a carefully designed and wide-ranging curriculum, an institutional commitment to teaching excellence, as well as extensive international links. In addition to offering an active and highly successful mooting programme, the Law School also houses a multi-award winning Law Clinic which offers students an unparalleled opportunity to practise law with the support and supervision of qualified solicitors, representing real clients in real cases.
In short, Kent Law School enables students to develop not only their legal knowledge but their intellectual, analytical and practical skills, ensuring that they have the academic and professional tools required for a successful career not only in law but in other professional contexts.
The Kent electronic law library, Lawlinks, is one of the best in the UK. All modules have their own websites and many of the lectures are recorded when given live and made available as MP3 files.
If you already have or will have a degree in another subject, you can apply for our Senior Status' programme. This allows you to complete the LLB in two years rather than three.
Kent has an excellent employment record, with Law School graduates demanding some of the highest starting salaries in the UK. Law graduates can go into a variety of careers, including working as: solicitors or barristers in private practice; lawyers in companies, local authorities, central government and its agencies, or in the institutions of the European Union; non-legal careers, such as banking, finance and management.
