Minimum requirements to be considered for the LLM:
Undergraduate degree with high 2:1 honours (i.e. overall average of at least 65%) in Law or a degree with at least 70% law content, or an equivalent international qualification and grading.
Exceptionally, you may be considered where a comparable academic level has been achieved through other graduate studies (such as a Graduate Diploma in Law) and where work or experience (at least three years legal work experience) has made you a suitable candidate for the LLM.
Please note: Meeting the minimum requirements for your application to be considered does not guarantee an offer. Applications for this programme are competitive.
Applications must be made online using King's online application portal and an application fee of £50 applies (non-refundable).
All applications must be made to the generic Master of Laws (LLM) programme. If accepted, and once you have enrolled onto the LLM programme, you will have the opportunity to choose one of our specialist LLMs.
