King’s College London is one of the top 5 universities for studying Law in the UK, with the Dickson Poon School of Law recognised as one of the world’s leading law schools (2020). Students on this stream are provided with an in-depth understanding of what it means to study law at a top university and how to successfully apply to such a competitive programme.
Students on our law stream have university-style lectures on different types of law such as Human Rights, Employment and Land. It is a valuable opportunity to learn about such a wide variety of practice areas, as students don’t usually get to study Law at school, this is important experience to find out if applying for Law at university is the right choice.
As well as our academics, we have links to world-class law firms based in London. Networking for law starts early, and the careers events help introduce and prepare our students for this. For example, our close relationship with the international law firm Gowling WLG gives students the opportunity to ask questions to lawyers and barristers as part of a careers day, as well as learn more about the pathways into law.
This subject stream is specifically for students that are thinking about studying Law at university.
