Program Description

Senior Status Law Degree

University of Kent, Kent Law School

Canterbury Campus

This degree is for students who already hold a degree in another subject and wish to obtain an LLB in two years rather than the normal three. This degree is particularly attractive to international students who have the opportunity to obtain an LLB with fewer years of study than in their home country.

Modules and Professional Recognition

Students on the Senior Status LLB study all of the core exemption modules required by the legal profession, and this degree carries exactly the same professional standing as the three year LLB.

Over the two years, students will study the following modules:

  • Criminal Law*
  • Public Law I*
  • Public Law II*
  • Introduction to Obligations*
  • The Law of Obligations*
  • Foundations of Property*
  • Land Law*
  • Equity*
  • European Union Law*

In addition, students will study optional modules in law in each of their two years of study.


Applications should be made through ucas as with all undergraduate courses in the UK. Applicants should use course code M100 and ensure they state their point of entry as 2 on the ucas online application.

*required for professional recognition
