Our LLB Law course focuses 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 represents 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. After your first year of the Law LLB you have the choice of applying to a dual degree or study abroad option. If you are successful in gaining a place on a pathway the duration of your degree would be four years with the exception of English Law & Asian Law. The LLB pathways currently include: • Law with American Legal Studies LLB • Law with Transnational Legal Studies LLB • Law with European Legal Studies LLB • English Law with Australian Law LLB • English Law & American Law LLB and JD • English Law & Asian Law LLB and LLM Teaching 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. All required modules are taught through lectures, small group tutorials and seminars. These tutorials and seminars will give you the opportunity to apply the general legal principles you have learnt to specific problems, and allow you to engage with our academics and explore issues further in depth. You will be assigned a personal tutor, who will advise on academic and personal issues and offer some careers assistance. We attach great importance to maintaining good relations between staff and students and our Staff-Student Liaison Committee meets regularly.

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.
