Undergraduate life in Law
A diverse community in one of the world’s greatest cities

The School has a lively student community from across the globe engaged in pro bono, professional development and mooting activities alongside their core studies. Studying in the heart of Legal London with King’s means that you have a wealth of opportunities available to you. These include networking events with leading law firms, NGOs and charities; volunteer and internship opportunities; the chance to hear from leading public figures and experts at our student and public events. One such event is our regular Contentious Questions seminar series - a unique opportunity for King’s students to debate moral dilemmas with Distinguished Visitor and former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales, the Rt Hon Lord Judge

King's Legal Clinic

The School offers students the chance to engage in real client work through King's Legal Clinic, where students work with qualified lawyers offering a range of pro-bono services to members of the community.

Find out more about these opportunities in this video looking at the experiences of one of our graduating LLB students who has worked with the Clinic.


The School is fortunate to be able to offer a range of prizes to its students during their studies. Prizes are awarded to those who have excelled academically or shown substantial progression from one year to the next. 

We offer over 60 undergraduate prizes ranging from £20 to £1,000. Prizes are either funded by the School or made possible by the generous sponsorship from our partners including law firms, Clifford Chance LLB, One Brick Court, Slaughter & May, among others. 

A full list of prizes is available on the intranet (for King's students and staff only) 

My experience at King’s was defined by its strong, diverse community. The Dickson Poon School of Law boasts a truly international student body, bringing knowledge, culture and perspectives from around the world.
