Faculty of Law Governance & International Relations
Deans' Welcome Message
Welcome to the Faculty of Law, Governance and International Relations at Kings University College; a diverse and vibrant community dedicated to the study and research of law, to making knowledge matter, and to developing all of our members; students and faculty, to their utmost potential.
The Faculty offers both a four- year and a three- year LL.B programme.
We are unique among law faculties in the country in that , among law schools in the country, our curriculum offers the most dynamic, responsive, broad, and engaging range of knowledge that is required in the modern world. Here, in addition to studying the traditional subjects taught at all faculties of law, our students also study political science, sociology and philosophy, and delve into topics of governance and developments that uniquely position them for success as global citizens.
As part of our commitment to ensure that our students receive the most complete grounding in legal education, our students undertake internships with law focussed institutions and law firms. Soon, our students will also be involved in our groundbreaking Grassroots Access to Justice Project; a project to improve access to justice and deliver public legal education to the most vulnerable citizens.
