The Kent Law School invites applications to its LLM pathway in Law and the Humanities. Applications are currently welcomed for the September 2017.

This one-year program is designed to develop a robust knowledge of a critical, humanities-based approach to law and legal study. The program is designed for students who wish to confront the challenges to justice and ethics that are posed by modern law, to improve their understanding of law as a cultural institution, and to build a solid personal foundation for their future engagements with law in any sector of the academy, industry or legal practice.

Kent Law School is globally renowned for its critical and interdisciplinary approach to law. Students on the Kent LLM in Law and the Humanities are from a wide variety of disciplinary backgrounds, including law and legal studies, film studies, literature, religious studies, politics and the creative arts. Teaching staff are leading researchers in their fields, with particular expertise in interdisciplinary critical legal scholarship drawing on social and political theory, visual culture, feminism and historical studies.

Kent remains the UK’s European University, and two modules in the Law and the Humanities LLM are taught in a one-week intensive format at the University’s Paris Centre. Students will have the opportunity to combine study in Paris with regular term participation in the rich LLM culture at Kent’s campus in Canterbury, UK. The flexible programme structure enables students to choose modules from across a wide range of legal fields, including International Law, Human Rights, Intellectual Property, Environmental Law and Medical Law and Ethics. Law and the Humanities students can also choose from modules offered by other Kent Schools in the humanities and social sciences (for example School of English, Politics and International Relations, Drama and Theatre, School of European Culture and Languages).
