Are you interested in our legal system? Do you find yourself drawn to stories about crime and justice? If so, Law may be the perfect subject for you ā¦
WHAT WILL I STUDY?
You will ļ¬nd out where laws come from and how they are made. You will also study the courts and people involved in the legal system. After this you will learn about legal responsibility in both criminal and civil law.
Throughout the course there will be a focus on criminal law, looking at a range of criminal oļ¬ences such as murder, GBH and burglary, as well as a number of criminal defences.
However, itās more than just criminal law. You will learn about the English legal system, tort law and either contract law or human rights law.
There are trips to the Magistrates Court and Crown Court, as well as opportunities to attend talks from Solicitors, Barristers and Magistrates.
Students will have the opportunity to set up a law society, and also take part in mock trials against other colleges.
All three examinations are taken at the end of your second year. There is no coursework element to this subject.
FUTURE CAREER OPPORTUNITIES:
The majority of Law students go on to Higher Education, studying subjects such as Law or Criminology, or Legal Services Apprenticeships. However, the skills that you will gain during these two years will be transferrable to a number of subjects at undergraduate level, as well as a number of diļ¬erent career pathways.
To study an A-level programme you will need to achieve 5 GCSEs grade 4 or above, including English and Maths. There are no additional requirements for this subject.
This subject will take two years to complete. Please note that this is not yet a linear subject, therefore you will be taking exams at the end of your first year that will count towards you final A-level qualification.
