Overview

during this Law with Quantitative Research (Hons) programme from University of Kent you will study the detail of the law, as well as its history. You will analyse judgments and legal developments while taking into account the political, ethical and social dimensions of the law. 

This ‘critical approach’ enhances what is already a fascinating subject. It helps you to fully understand the law and there are many chances to discuss and debate its role in society.

Teaching is via lectures, small group seminars and case studies. Our popular mooting programme, hosted in a dedicated space within the £5m Wigoder Law Building, gives you the chance to develop advocacy skills in a simulated courtroom setting before a bench comprised of local judges, practising barristers, solicitors and lecturers.

Kent Law School has a supportive environment and your lecturers have office hours where they provide guidance on a one-to-one basis. We also provide:

  • the Skills Hub offering tailored guidance, five days a week in term time
  • a law librarian to guide you in the use of online and printed resources.

In addition to your Law modules, you study compulsory modules focusing on Quantitative Research. Statistics and data analysis are becoming more and more important in a huge range of fields, including policing and criminal justice, business and finance, and the media. 

Quantitative methods are also important in the academic study of law, offering a toolkit to compare legal systems across time and space, analyse policy and explore the relationship between the law and wider society.
