About this degree

If you study the four year integrated Masters MLaw Professional Legal Practice course, you will graduate with a Masters level qualification and will also be exempt from the LPC.

Our classes are taught by practising lawyers, business leaders and leading academics, so you'll gain practical knowledge alongside your academic studies, ensuring you'll have all the skills needed to practice law.

Our Law programmes are more than just law degrees. Yes, they equip you with the knowledge and skills necessary to be a lawyer, but they do so in the corporate environment of an international FTSE 100 company.

You’ll get direct exposure to hugely successful real-world lawyers and business leaders, through regular legal workshops, termly industry conferences and an annual residential. Previous workshops and conferences have been facilitated by leading representatives from Unilever, Savills, Merrill Lynch, Direct Line Group, Holiday Extras, Atos and PA Consulting. You’ll get the chance to compete in national and international competitions and business challenges too.

You'll graduate with a degree from the University of Kent. Known as the UK’s European University, the University of Kent is ranked 23rd in The Guardian University Guide 2017, it is also ranked 17th in the UK for research intensity out of 122 multi-faculty universities in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) and has the fifth equal highest score for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2015, out of 115 multi-faculty institutions. It has also been voted one of the top five universities for teaching in the UK, according to the Times Higher Education (THE).
