During these informative and interactive webinars you can learn from experts in their field. Indeed, research at Kent Law School has been ranked second in the UK by the Times Higher Education, following the results of the Research Excellence Framework (REF).

These webinars promise to be just as stimulating as our previous webinars from the past three years, which are available on the Kent Law School YouTube channel. It is fun to participate in the live webinars, but you can also watch previous sessions covering diverse issues such as the legal ramifications of artificial intelligence used in policing, who our judges are and why it matters, whether it is right that a jury should be told about the previous misconduct of a defendant and matters arising in immigration law, human rights, legal ethics and intellectual property.
