Students from across all degree disciplines can apply now for a three-day Pre-LLM Summer School at Kent’s centre in Paris.
The Summer School offers an immersive experience of postgraduate study to students considering whether to apply for a one year LLM (Master’s in Law) at Kent.
Sample classes are offered across the range of Kent LLM specialisations, including Intellectual Property Law, Human Rights Law, Environmental Law, Law and the Humanities, International Commercial Law, International Migration Law.
Through these classes students will engage in structured discussions that introduce both the advanced subject knowledge and the critical and theoretical analyses that distinguish the School’s distinctive approach to postgraduate study. There will also be reading groups and an opportunity to discuss the mechanics of the application process.
The Pre-LLM Summer Programme will be held at Reid Hall, located in the heart of Montparnasse in Paris, on 27/28/29 June and repeated on 29/30 June and 1 July. A non-refundable fee of £80 includes accommodation, lunch and refreshments.

The Kent LLM
The one-year Master’s in Law programme at Kent Law School is called the Kent LLM. Kent LLM students have the opportunity to develop specialisms in a host of subject areas including: Criminal Justice; Environmental Law; European Law; International Commercial Law; International Criminal Justice; International Environmental Law; International Law with International Relations; International Law; Medical Law and Ethics; and Human Rights Law. The innovative nature of the programme means that students have the option to leave their choice of specialism open until after they arrive, with their specialisms being determined by the modules that they select.
Students who have already decided to apply for the Kent LLM beginning in September 2016 can also still apply for a taught master’s scholarship paying tuition fees at either the Home/EU or overseas rate. Applications for the Taught Master’s Overseas Scholarship close on Monday 14 March 2016 and applications for the Taught Master’s Home/EU Scholarship close on Friday 6 May 2016. All scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic excellence.
For students without scholarships, a new system of postgraduate loans for Master’s degrees in the UK has been introduced for the 2016-17 academic year. Available to home and EU students for both full-time and part-time study, the new loans will provide up to £10,000 a year for taught and research Master’s courses in all subject areas. They are subject to eligibility criteria based on age, nationality and residency.
