A Kingston University International Law degree is a great foundation for a career in the legal profession, business or industry. This course has been specifically designed to give you an advantage in the workplace.
You will study the foundations of legal knowledge – Public Law, Criminal Law, Law of Tort, Law of Contract, Land Law, EU Law, and Equity and Trusts. These will bring an international focus to your studies. You can choose to undertake an internship, either in the UK or abroad, or professional module at the end of your first and second year. Previous students have enjoyed work placements in a variety of settings including Colemans-ctts, one of Kingston's largest firms of solicitors (now named Simpson Millar LLP), legal publishers Sweet & Maxwell Ltd, and Cavendish Publishing Ltd, an independent publisher of law books.
You can also choose to spend a year studying abroad – a great addition to your CV if you are considering an international career. In addition you’ll learn first-hand about community legal cases through our Advice Centre, and participate in skills-based competitions.
