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.
