Course summary

A law degree from Kent opens doors, not only into the legal profession but to many other areas, such as politics, business, the civil service and the NGO sector.

Overview

Kent Law School is renowned for its world-leading research and an approach which enables you to think critically about law within the broader context of society, considering it's role and impact, and the potential it has to change the world we live in.

Our Law with a Foundation Year - LLB (Hons) degree programme

Law with a Foundation Year extends access to the degree to students from a wide variety of qualifications and educational backgrounds. It is the ideal programme if your grades are below the level required for entry to the degree directly, or if you have excellent high school grades in a qualification requiring a bridge to undergraduate level study.

During the Foundation Year you complete modules which prepare you for the study of Law, and which develop your academic skills to enable you to confidently progress to a university degree. Upon successful completion of the Foundation Year at the required level (see below), you move on to the first year of our Law LLB (Hons) programme.

Law is a stimulating degree that sharpens your thinking and your powers of persuasion while giving you extensive legal knowledge. You study the detail of the law, as well as its history. You analyse judgments and legal developments while taking into account the political, ethical and social dimensions of the law. This critical approach enhances what is already a fascinating subject.
