Short Description
About the Course

A levels are subject-based qualifications that can lead to university, further study, training, or work. You can choose to study three A levels over two years or a combination of A Levels and vocational A Level equivalent qualifications such as BTEC Certificates (equivalent to an AS)/ Extended Certificates (equivalent to a whole A Level). You may also wish to complete an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) during your second year. When choosing A levels subjects it is important to consider what you are likely to enjoy and be good at. If you enjoy a subject or have an ability in it already, you are more likely to do well. Also if you have a particular career, job, or further study in mind, you may need to choose specific subjects in order to meet entry requirements.

What you will study

A-Level Law includes the study of the nature of the law and the English legal system, one area of private law (law contract or law tort), one area of public law (criminal law or human rights law,) and one further area of public or private law. Typical issues which you will consider include: What is the difference between civil and criminal law? Is the law sufficiently clear for us to know whether we are breaking it? Do legally unqualified magistrates really know what they are doing? Do police exercise their powers correctly? How do you become a lawyer?

Access Method

During the 1st year there will be 5 formal internal assessments which you will need to pass in order to progress into the 2nd year. At the end of the 2nd year there are three public examinations.

Progression

Progress to a wide range of degree and other higher education courses, apprenticeships or employment.
