You learn and think about the operation, scope and role of law within society – understanding the way the law shapes and is shaped by morality, public perception, politics and world events. You study the social impact of law, and develop your academic and professional skills in a supportive and intellectually rewarding environment.
By studying Management you gain the skills and knowledge essential for managing key areas of organisations. You develop an understanding of the role and interrelationship between strategic management, human resource management and operations management. You have an appreciation of the global challenges facing managers from both an operational and a strategic perspective, and are sensitive to the need for mainstreaming of business ethics and corporate social responsibility into management policy and practice.Law
Kent Law School emphasises research-led teaching which means that the modules taught are at the leading edge of new legal and policy developments. Kent Law School is renowned nationally for research quality, being ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’. All of our research active staff teach so you are taught by influential thinkers who are at the forefront of their field. We also have one of the best student:staff ratios in the country, which allows small, weekly seminar-group teaching in all of our core modules, where you are actively encouraged to take part.
Most modules are assessed by end-of-year examinations and continuous assessment, the ratio varying from module to module, with Kent encouraging and supporting the development of research and written skills. Some modules include an optional research-based dissertation that counts for 45% or, in some cases, 100% of the final mark. Assessment can also incorporate assessment through oral presentation and argument, often in the style of legal practice (such as mooting), and client based work and reflection through our Law Clinic.
We use a variety of teaching methods, including lectures, case-study analysis, group projects and presentations, and problem-based learning scenarios and management simulations. Assessment is by a mixture of coursework and written examinations.
