Law LLB(Hons) with professional experience: Course features

What this course offers you

  • The Department of Law has strong links with external organisations, who can help make you more employable: for instance, we have established a partnership with the Home Office's Legal Department to enable law students to gain professional experience through a year-long paid work placement. The department also has a thriving relationship with the National Centre for Domestic Violence (NCDV) which has resulted in many law students working as domestic violence case workers.
  • You can tailor your degree to suit your interests and career goals with a variety of optional modules.
  • Our Community Legal Advice Centre provides opportunities for you to gain real-life skills, enhance your CV and gain experience with 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.
  • You can take part in numerous skills-based competitions.  This year students have taken part in the Space Law Moot Court Competition in Lisbon, International Criminal Court Moot in The Hague, the Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Vienna, and the Model United Nations in New York. Students have also attended national competitions including negotiation competitions.
  • You'll be assigned a personal tutor - a member of academic staff who will support your progress at Kingston University (and after you graduate). Your tutor will provide academic guidance and help you make the best of the resources and support services offered at Kingston University.
  • The department has a vibrant Law Society, including a successful Mooting Society, which runs in-house competitions.
Law students competed at the International Criminal Court Mooting competition in the Hague, Spring 2017
  • You will have the opportunity to gain additional qualifications: if you take and pass the mediation module (Dispute Resolution), you will have the opportunity to qualify as a mediator.
  • You can spend an additional year studying abroad at one of Kingston's partner institutions. Recent students have studied abroad in California, Australia, the West Indies, Sweden, Spain and France.
