Why Law

The modern law graduate can move into a variety of positions not only confined to the courts.

Law is one of the oldest fields of study, and remains as one of the most sought-after and widely respected programmes in the world. A law degree is the first step towards a career path in the traditional legal sector, whether as a practicing advocate or solicitor. However, a law degree is also one that opens many doors. The modern law graduate can move into a variety of positions not only confined to the courts but may also venture into the government, the public sector, business, corporations and even in entertainment. As the legal profession grows more dynamic every day, there is a demand for law graduates who are holistic in their approach and global in their outlook.

At KDU, our emphasis on holistic education and real-world learning gives our students the best exposure in the study of law. We guide students to discover the role they are most suited for when studying law here. Our Bachelor of Laws (3+0) University of London International programme is tailored to help students develop their legal analytical, communication, problem-solving, critical thinking and research skills so they may excel in any career choice – whether as practicing attorneys, members of the judiciary or other legal professionals across a myriad of industries.
