Students on the European Legal Studies (Italian) degree spend their first two years at Kent, their third year at one of our European partner universities, where teaching is in Italian, and the fourth year back at Kent. You study the detail of the law, as well as its history. You analyse judgments and legal developments while taking into account the political, ethical and social dimensions of the law. This ‘critical approach’ enhances what is already a fascinating subject. It helps you to fully understand the law and there are many chances to discuss and debate its role in society. You also spend some of your time learning Italian to a high level. Teaching is via lectures, small group seminars and case studies. Our popular mooting programme, hosted in a dedicated space within the £5m Wigoder Law Building, gives you the chance to develop advocacy skills in a simulated courtroom setting before a bench comprised of local judges, practising barristers, solicitors and lecturers. Kent Law School has a supportive environment and your lecturers have office hours where they provide guidance on a one-to-one basis. We also provide:

  • the Skills Hub offering tailored guidance, five days a week in term time
  • a law librarian to guide you in the use of online and printed resources
If you are interested in developing your skills in a modern European language, we also offer the following three-year programmes:
  • Law with a Language (French)
  • Law with a Language (German)
  • Law with a Language (Spanish)
Year abroad In addition to the European Legal Studies programme, we also offer English and French Law, which includes a year at one of our partner universities in France, where teaching is in French. Alternatively, you can study for a year in Asia or Canada on our International Legal Studies with a Year Abroad programme. Teaching on this programme is in English.
