NON ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS
Scholastic activities (Very Desirable)
We look for applicants with an enthusiasm for scholastic activities in general such as reading, debating, theological interests etc. Participation will be valued but achievement in these areas of interest will also be recognised. We are also looking for applicants with an enthusiasm to study a law degree programme and have thought through their reasons for considering this subject option. The King’s degree programme focuses on the study of law as an intellectual discipline. Law may be regarded as a social science, a branch of ethics or as part of political philosophy, and all of these perspectives are explored within the learning environment of King's. It also can form the first major step towards qualifying for practice as a solicitor or barrister. Applicants outside of the UK should indicate why they particularly wish to study English law.
Community activities
We look for applicants who have participated as fully as possible in school, college or community life, making the most of the opportunities available to them and also demonstrated some experience of society beyond their immediate environment.
General
We look for applicants who have varied extra-curricular interests and enjoy active participation in areas such as sport, music and the arts in general. Participation will be valued but any achievement in extra-curricula activities will also be recognised. King’s aspires to recruit applicants who will continue with their personal interests and contribute to the vitality of the College community.

Although we do not require applicants to have been in paid or voluntary employment, we welcome applications from those with any experience of legal work experience.
