With recognised excellence in teaching, world-class research, and an award-winning Law Clinic, Kent Law School (KLS) offers you an intellectually stimulating environment in which to study and explore the law.

KLS is part of the Division for the Study of Law, Society and Social Justice (LSSJ). LSSJ is a large, diverse, multidisciplinary Division with a shared ambition to make a difference; we strive to engage critically with social justice practices and projects at home and around the world.
