About

The students in the Socio-legal Studies programme from University of Kent benefit immensely from a vibrant research community, a supportive environment and many opportunities to engage critically with academic research and contemporary issues. They are immersed in a research culture which situates legal studies in its historical, social and economic context.

The Law School has an active and supportive student community, with excellent dedicated postgraduate facilities. Students are usually allocated two supervisors, who give guidance about the nature of the research, the standard of work required, and about the relevant literature and sources that should be consulted. Students of Socio-legal Studies programme from University of Kent  and supervisors meet monthly, ensuring consistent and continuous support during the length of the degree.
