The Dean's Welcome
Kingston University is an innovative, vibrant institution with the aim of being pivotal in both the learning society and the knowledge economy. Business and Law are subjects that are essential to this vision and all colleagues in our Faculty strive to equip our students to make effective contributions to society and the economy, whilst striving for excellence in learning, teaching and research.
The Faculty is comprised of Kingston Business School and Kingston Law School, both cornerstones of the University, and our aim is to provide and unlock opportunities in business, management and the law. The two schools work in tandem to offer a comprehensive and professionally relevant set of courses and are brought together by our dedication to student achievement, pursuing world-class research and engaging and interacting with practice to shape, inform and evaluate what we do.
The environment that you are taught in is key to providing you with a fulfilling and exciting study experience, and helping to ensure that you are well equipped to meet the challenges that studying at a high level will bring. Our safe, green Kingston Hill campus, including our first class Learning Resources Centre offer the setting for you to receive the quality teaching we pride ourselves on, from our wide group of diverse, professional and supportive academics. Our teaching satisfaction scores are among the best in London and you will meet a friendly, diverse group of students on all our courses.
I do hope you find everything you are looking for at Kingston Law School, and would like to extend my personal welcome should you decide to join us in the near future.

Dean, Faculty of Business and Law
We are a forward looking and friendly Law School with a long and distinguished history. We are very proud of our traditions, having been well established since the 1960’s. We have now grown into a leading Law School, offering a full range of courses, from undergraduate, through conversion to our range of LLM programmes.
Coupled with our teaching is our commitment to research, which is a key ingredient in success and development. Many of our academics have strong research backgrounds and as a Law School we work closely with a large number of organisations to study and develop new and influential ideas.
We want to help you further your career aspirations, regardless of what field of law you are interested in. We offer huge opportunities to develop your legal skills due to our excellent reputation in mooting, client interviewing, negotiation and mediation skills. In all of these areas we achieve a considerable amount of success in annual student competitions.
These opportunities have already helped countless of our alumni, who have moved on to become barristers, senior partners within large law firms and judges. All of our academics have a genuine interest and commitment in helping our students develop and achieve at Kingston Law School. Our location near to central London means our students are on the door-step of the legal heartland of the country, while also benefitting from the safe and tranquil environment at our Kingston Hill campus.
