The Kent LLM

Specialised. Open. Critical. International.

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. The Kent LLM enables you to broaden and deepen your knowledge and understanding of law by specialising in one or more different area. It also gives you the opportunity to become an active member of our vibrant and engaging research community.

The Kent LLM (one year full-time or two years part-time) is 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. Please note that new students can choose to begin their LLM studies in September or in January.

The pathways

You can choose to leave your choice of pathway open until after you arrive or you can choose a pathway in any one or two areas of Law from the list below:

Don't want to specialise? You are free to take any of the law modules we offer and graduate with a Master of Laws in Law.

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…
