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.
