King's College London, University of London has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Our LLB law degree in London and the Master 1 en droit in Paris will provide a platform for a professional career in England, Wales or France. Studying in France is a key part of this programme and what makes our approach distinctive is the way our fully qualified French legal academics and practitioners train you in the French method of legal education while you are still in London. This means that you be able to make the most of your time in France.
This is a four-year course. You will study for an LLB in English Law & French Law at King’s and a Master 1 degree of the University of Paris II. In lieu of the third year of the LLB (M100) degree course, you will study for two years in Paris. The third and fourth years of study provide 120 credits, taken equally from each year and treated in the same manner as the final year of your three-year LLB degree.
We have a strong tradition of excellence in teaching, with consistently high student satisfaction ratings for Law in the National Student Survey. Our teaching methods centre on lectures, smaller tutorials and seminars. Through these smaller groups, you will have the opportunity to apply the legal principles you have learned to specific problems, while our new research-dedicated seminars offer you an opportunity to engage with our academics.
You will be assigned a personal tutor, who will provide advice on any academic and personal issues and offer some careers assistance. We attach great importance to maintaining good relations between staff and students and our Staff-Student Liaison Committee meets regularly to discuss issues and ensure that students are receiving the support they need to maximise the benefit of their time at King’s.
