Course detail

Description

The School of Law at King's has been operating a joint LLB / Master 1 programme with the Université Paris 1 Panthéon - Sorbonne since 1977. This prestigious programme is the oldest and largest of its kind in Britain and France, leading to two separate degrees that permits students to qualify for the legal professions in France, England and Wales, or both. The programme provides a bi-juridical and bilingual education making its graduates very attractive to future employers.

What gives this programme its particular distinctiveness is that, in anticipation of their studies in Paris, UK students are thoroughly trained in the French method of legal education by fully qualified French legal academics and practitioners while they are still studying at King's.

To further support your learning and future career development during your degree, international law firm, Reed Smith LLP, has developed a new partnership with the Anglo-French programme at King's. The partnership aims to provide you with support, advice and opportunities for practical work experience during the four years of your course. To achieve this goal, we will utilise Reed Smith's alumni from the programme in the firm's London and Paris offices together with the firm's Graduate Development team, provising you with the firm's collective knowledge of the skills and qualities required to help you succeed.

In November 2008, an international colloquium was held in the Sorbonne in Paris to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the programme. More than 300 participants attended the event including Government officials and high ranking judges. Anglo-French graduates from all parts of the world gathered together to share their respective experiences.

The programme's 35th anniversary was celebrated at King's College London in November 2012. Read more about the programme and the anniversary in the interview with programme leader, Dr Eva Steiner, in Avenue des Ecoles.

Students on the programme run their own association, the AJPK (Association des Juristes de Paris de Panthéon-Sorbonne et de King's College London), which provides additional support for students, both in London and Paris.

Teaching style

We have a strong tradition of excellence in teaching (with consistently high student satisfaction ratings for Law in the National Student Survey) and are committed to maintaining that tradition. Our teaching methods include lectures, tutorials and seminars. Through seminars and tutorials, students gain practice in applying the general legal principles they have learned to specific problems, while our new research-dedicated seminars offer you an opportunity to engage with our academics in a capacity that best take advantage of their expertise. Each student is assigned a personal tutor, who advises on academic and personal problems and offers some careers assistance. We attach great importance to developing good relations between staff and students and a Staff-Student Liaison Committee meets regularly.

Structure of course and assessment

The first year of all LLB programmes is composed of a set of core modules: Elements of the Law of Contract; Criminal Law; Public Law; and European Law. In the second year, students study three core modules (Law of Tort, Law of Property and Law of Trusts) and one module from a list of options. Apart from those studying English Law & French Law, English Law & German Law and English Law & Hong Kong Law, final-year students study Jurisprudence & Legal Theory and three modules from the list of options.

All core modules are taught by lectures, tutorials and research seminars. Research seminars cover four topics for each subject throughout the academic year, taught via two-hour teaching classes of up to 12 students at a time. These classes explore research issues relating to core subjects in depth, including from interdisciplinary perspectives. Since the introduction of the research seminars, assessment in the core modules is now 70 per cent exam-based, while 30 per cent is based on coursework written on one of the topics covered in the research seminars. Assessment in optional modules varies, and may encompass examinations, essays, moots, or a negotiation exercise.

Location

The Dickson Poon School of Law is located in the heart of the British legal world with the offices of major law firms, the Law Society, the Inns of Court and the Royal Courts of Justice all within walking distance. Based at the Strand Campus in Somerset House East Wing, one of London’s most beautiful and iconic buildings, the School boasts a stylish new home for its staff and students, including student common rooms, teaching and seminar rooms and a moot court room. The Maughan Library contains a vast array of legal texts, reference materials, periodicals and datasets and is equipped with online databases such as Westlaw UK, Lexis, Justis, PLC and Kluwer Arbitration. We also produce our own legal periodical, the King’s Law Journal.

Special notes

We have many highly active student-run societies as well as King's award-winning students’ union, KCLSU, who organises a wide variety of social, sporting and cultural activities.

Both the King’s College London Law Society and Bar Society organise a number of social and career-oriented functions such as: internal and external mooting competitions; skills workshops; mock interview sessions; lecture series with prestigious barristers and other legal practitioners; and the Annual Black Tie Dinner; and the Inaugural Freshers’ Party. The Mooting Society leads workshops and practice moots for novices as well as competitions tailored to specific modules.

The Pro Bono Society supports and promotes legally-related volunteer work and education to the community, and runs a number of exciting projects, including StreetLaw; Amicus; Law Mentoring; and The Legal Clinic (assisted by esteemed City law firm Speechly Bircham) to mention a few. Involvement with the society is a great way to contribute to the community as well as looking great on your CV due to the skills gained in the process.

Structure

  • What particularly gives the King’s College London / Paris 1 programme its distinctiveness is that, in anticipation of their studies in Paris, UK students are thoroughly trained in the French method of legal education by fully qualified French legal academics and practitioners whilst they are still at King’s.

    This is a four-year programme. Students study for an LLB in English Law & French Law at King’s and a Master 1 degree of the University of Paris I. In lieu of the third year of the LLB (M100) degree course, students on this programme study for two years in Paris. The third and fourth years of study provide 120 credits, taken equally from each year (60 plus 60) and treated in the same manner as for the final year of the three-year LLB degree.

    Currently, students study the modules shown below. King's reviews its modules on a regular basis, in order to continue to offer innovative and exciting programmes and this list is therefore subject to change. Please check here for updates, or contact the School for further advice.


    Students take five core modules, the four listed below as well as French Legal System (All classes and examinations in French Legal System are conducted in French)

Many law firms will target you but they expect very high quality, motivated applicants in line with those from other top law schools both in the UK and overseas.
