Course detail

Description

Our LLB Law programme focus on the study of law as an intellectual discipline. It can form the first major step towards qualifying for practice as a solicitor or barrister, but also represent appropriate preliminary training for a range of other careers in which legal knowledge is an asset. The degree is suitable for students who have a general interest in law but want to find out more about it before deciding on a particular vocation.

We place great emphasis on making sure that you settle in to life as a law student and make the most of the opportunities available to you, which is why our School has consistently scored amongst the highest student satisfaction ratings in the National Student Survey for Law within the Russell group of top 20 British universities since 2005.

The first year of all our LLB Law programmes is composed of compulsory modules (Elements of the Law of Contract, Criminal Law, Public Law, European Law). The second year consists of three compulsory modules (Law of Tort, Law of Property and Law of Trusts), plus one module or equivalent chosen from a list of options. Apart from those studying English Law & French Law, English Law & German Law and English Law & Hong Kong Law, final third-year students study Jurisprudence & Legal Theory and three modules from a list of options.

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.
