The English Law & American Law course allows students to obtain an LLB law degree from King’s in London and a Juris Doctor from Columbia University, New York or Georgetown University, Washington D.C. The first and second years follow the LLB course, with the third and fourth years spent at Columbia University or Georgetown University. This transfer can be made following a selection after completion of the first year of LLB. Students can engage in real client work through the School’s Legal Clinic established in April 2017. Students who spend their final year of their degree at King's can select the Student Law Clinic module, while students of all years can apply to volunteer with the clinic during the academic year or over the summer holiday. Supervised by the Clinic's in-house solicitor as well as solicitors from high street and corporate/commercial law firms (e.g. Duncan Lewis and Farrer), students learn transferable skills such as effective communication and teamwork and see the law in a practical context. Through the Clinic students can also engage with third sector partners such as the Personal Support Unit at the Royal Courts of Justice or participate in its Mediation project or public legal education activity).
