Course content

The Kent LLM (and associated Diploma programme) allows you to broaden and deepen your knowledge and understanding of law by specialising in one or more different areas.

The LLM in Law (Erasmus-Europe) provides an exciting opportunity for students to obtain an LLM by studying both at Kent and at one of our partner universities in continental Europe (currently including the Université de Cergy-Pontoise in France) with all of the teaching conducted in English.

The programme gives you the opportunity to study at two high-quality law schools and also lets you experience two countries, their cultures and their legal systems.

This programme enables you to obtain an LLM by spending your first term at Kent, and your second at one of our partner universities in Europe, before returning to Kent to complete a dissertation. During your second term, you complete a comparative research paper, supervised by Kent staff, on an area of law that you have studied at Kent and your partner university.

You are required to take three compulsory modules from the range of taught LLM modules at Kent, follow an approved programme of study at our European partner university and produce a comparative research paper of 7-8,000 words and a dissertation of 15-20,000 words.
