Law and Welfare

This degree offers you the opportunity to study the related disciplines of Law and Welfare in a three-year programme, with a pathway offering the opportunity to obtain a Qualifying Law Degree. Covering the foundations of law alongside compulsory and optional modules broadly in the area of social welfare (taught by our highly regarded School of Sociology, Social Policy, and Social Research), you develop an understanding of the law, taught from a critical perspective which allows you to engage in informed debate about contemporary legal issues (with an understanding of its history and development), and an understanding of contemporary issue in social welfare, looking at both the 'causes' of such problems but also at the policies directed towards them by government and at the role of voluntary and private welfare. Kent Law School is recognised as one of the leading law schools in the UK. It has an international reputation both for its world-leading research and high quality education.
