Law LLB(Hons) with professional experience: Course features

What this course offers you

  • You can tailor your degree to suite your interests and career goals with a variety of optional modules.
  • The Department of Law has strong links with external organisations, essential to make students more employable: The department has for instance established a partnership with the Home Office's Legal Department to enable law students to gain professional experience through a yearlong paid work placement. The department has also a thriving relationship with the National Centre for Domestic Violence (NCDV) which has resulted in 25 law students currently working as domestic violence case workers.
  • The Community Legal Advice Centre, run by the Department of Law, provides opportunities for students to gain valuable skills, enhance their CVs and learn first-hand about community legal cases. The Centre was set up to provide free legal advice to individuals, charities, businesses and community groups in the Kingston area. Recently our students have been advising on issues such as landlord and tenant disputes, employment disputes, family matters and financial mis-selling.
  • Law students can take part in numerous skills based competitions.  This year students have taken part in the International Criminal Court Moot in The Hague, the Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Vienna, as well as the Model United Nations in New York. Students also have the opportunity to attend national competitions including negotiation competitions.  The department has a vibrant Law Society, including a successful Mooting Society which runs in-house competitions.
