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.

This specialisation provides you with a broad, advanced understanding of a wide range of European legal topic areas, notably but not exclusively relating to the law of the European Union. In addition to focusing on the law and policy of the EU, including constitutional law, the law relating to the single market, competition law, environmental law, and human rights law, the programme offers you the opportunity to study European legal integration from a comparative law perspective.

You not only consider a wide range of key legal principles that underpin the evolving framework of European legal integration, but also the impact of European law in its broader social, political and economic context. The proximity of Kent to London, Brussels and other major European capital cities makes it ideally located for the study of European Law.

Studying for a Master's in Law (LLM) at Kent means having the certainty of gaining an LLM in a specialist area of Law. The Kent LLM gives you the freedom to leave your choice of specialism open until after you arrive, your specialism being determined by the modules you choose.

Learning and Teaching

This programme involves both taught modules and a substantial dissertation component. Taught modules are delivered by a mixture of lectures and seminars. Although most lectures do encourage student participation, they are used primarily to introduce chosen topics, identify relevant concepts, and introduce the student to the main debates and ideas relevant to the chosen topic. They give students a framework of knowledge that students can then develop, and reflect on, through their own reading and study.

Seminars are smaller-sized, student-led classes. Students are expected to carry out reading prior to classes, and are usually set questions or problems to which to apply the knowledge they have developed. Through class discussion, or the presentation of student papers, students are given the opportunity to test and refine their knowledge and understanding, in a relaxed and supportive environment.

The number of contact hours in each module will reflect that module’s credit weighting. 15-credit modules will have, in total, 15 contact hours (of either lectures or seminars); 30-credit modules will have 30 contact hours. Students must accumulate, in total, between 90 and 120 credits of taught modules for the programme (depending upon the length of their dissertation).

In addition to their taught modules, all students must produce a dissertation of between 10,000 and 20,000 words. This is intended to be the product of the student’s own independent research. Each student is allocated a dissertation supervisor, and will have a series of (usually four) one-to-one meetings with their supervisor over the course of the academic year.

Finally, all taught postgraduate students on this programme, are encouraged to attend the various events, including guest lectures and seminars, organised through the School’s research centres, including the Institute for Commercial and Corporate Law, and Durham European Law Institute.

European Union law has become highly significant over recent decades, not just for member states but beyond in transnational and international governance. Despite the multiple crises currently faced by the European Union, European Integration remains a key process shaping developments in the member states, the neighbour countries and international regulatory reforms and governance processes.

The LLM in European Law and Governance aims to generate a comprehensive understanding of EU and transnational law and governance in a global context and to enable graduates to critically approach a range of problems in the field, with a specialisation either on substantive aspects or on procedural aspects of the theme.

The programme is unique in offering a law in context approach to European Union Law, Transnational Law by teaching substantive law alongside legal theory and political and sociological approaches to federalism and multilevel governance. A high level of academic engagement is complemented by the opportunity to obtain subject specific placements in a competitive process.

Students can specialise on general EU topics and graduate with an LLM in EU Law and Governance or specialise on environmental and sustainability issues and graduate with an LLM in Environmental Law and Governance.

Depending on success, students can either deliver a 60 credit (20 ECTS) dissertation or a module consisting of an internship and a dissertation at the same time.

The programme is delivered through a series of taught modules and culminates in the submission of a dissertation on an original topic.

Compulsory modules

Multi-level Governance and European Law
Challenges for a World in Transition
Dissertation of 15,000-20,000 words
