The Kent LLM
A Master's in Law (LLM) at Kent is a fantastic opportunity to work with a team of specialists with in-depth knowledge of a wide range of topics in the field of Law. You can broaden and deepen your knowledge and understanding of law by specialising in one or more different area as well as becoming an active member of our vibrant research community. Our programmes are open to graduates from a relevant discipline (an undergraduate degree in law is not a requirement) and will be of particular interest to students interested in developing their legal skills.

You can also choose to study a Postgraduate Diploma (PDip) or Postgraduate Certificate (PCert), both of which are shorter term versions of the full Kent LLM programme.
Full-time or part-time
All our programmes can be studied full-time or part-time (the LLM and PDip are one year full-time or two years part-time and the PCert is one term full-time or two terms part-time).
