Program overview

Studying for a Master's in Law (LLM) at Kent means having the certainty of gaining an LLM in a specialist area of Law. The Kent LLM gives students the freedom to leave their choice of specialism open until after students arrive, when it will be determined by the modules They choose. It is possible to start the Kent LLM at Canterbury in September or in January. January entry allows students the flexibility to begin their studies without the need to wait for entry in September. Students who begin the Kent LLM on a full-time basis in January study over a period of 15 months. They study three taught modules in the first spring term and three taught modules in the autumn term. In the second spring term, students write your dissertation. Dissertation submission will be on the final day of the second spring term (usually in early April). During the summer vacation, they are: required to participate in an online module (Legal Research and Writing Skills); encouraged to begin researching your dissertation; required to attend the LLM Student Conference (in June); encouraged to explore work experience and internships (where visa conditions permit).
