Considering postgraduate study in Law? Come to one of our open events in Canterbury or Brussels
3 February 2017
Final year law and non-law students are invited to learn more about postgraduate funding and study opportunities at Kent Law School by coming to one of two open events taking place in Canterbury and Brussels.
Postgraduate programmes at Kent Law School are open to all graduates from a relevant discipline (an undergraduate degree in law is not a requirement) and may be of particular interest to students interested in developing their legal skills.
The next Postgraduate Open Event on Kent’s Canterbury campus will take place on Tuesday 7 March from 17.00 to 19.00 in the Darwin Conference Suite. This event offers an excellent opportunity for students to speak to specialist academics and admissions staff about Kent Law School's innovative, one-year Masters in Law programme, the Kent LLM.
The Kent LLM enables students to broaden and deepen their knowledge and understanding of law by specialising in one or more different areas, according to their career interests and aspirations, even if they are a non-law graduate. Students have the opportunity to develop specialisms in a host of subject areas including:
- Criminal Justice
- Environmental Law and Policy
- European Law
- Human Rights Law
- Intellectual Property Law
- International Commercial Law
- International Criminal Justice
- International Environmental Law
- International Law
- International Law with International Relations
- Law and the Humanities
- Medical Law and Ethics
The Open Event also offers a chance to find out about Kent's £9m postgraduate scholarship fund, our competitive fees and the Global Skills Award and Researcher Development Programme that can help enhance your career prospects.
Two LLM programmes are also offered at Kent's centre in Brussels and prospective students are invited to attend an Open Event at the Brussels School of International Studies on Saturday 25 February from 10.00 to 13.00.

Further personal insights into the Kent LLM experience at our Canterbury campus are shared by Head of School Professor Toni Williams and current LLM students in our latest YouTube video:
In this second video, Head of School Professor Toni Williams talks in more detail about our critical approach to teaching at Kent. She also explains the distinctive and flexible structure of the Kent LLM; the option to study at Brussels; and the value of gaining skills in legal imagination…
"That's really what the critical approach hones in you – new ways of thinking about law, new ways of imagining law, thinking about law's creative possibilities, it's destructive potential…"
