Welcome from the Acting Head of the Law School
We are a forward looking and friendly Law School with a long and distinguished history. We are very proud of our heritage as a leading Law School, established in the 1960s. We offer a comprehensive range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in current and developing aspects of law, including the LLB, a range of Postgraduate Certificate and Diploma courses and our suite of LLM programmes.
We are a research-focused Law School and we strongly believe that a research led learning experience of the highest quality will enable our students to meet the challenges posed by new developments in substantive law and the legal system. 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.
Our aim is help you to achieve your career aspirations and make your life what you want it to be. We encourage our students to take a hands-on approach to their legal studies and at Kingston Law School you will have a wide range of opportunities to develop your legal skills through our internationally renowned teaching in mooting, client interviewing, negotiation and mediation skills. In all of these areas we have achieved considerable success in national and international student competitions. We have recently opened a pro bono Community Legal Advice Centre (currently closed for the summer holidays until September), in which you can gain hands on practical experience of advising clients on their legal problems.
These opportunities have already helped our many illustrious 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. Our Kingston Hill campus offers you the benefits of both a safe and tranquil environment in which to study as well as world-class study and leisure facilities.
I look forward to welcoming you to Kingston.
