A Level Law provides a useful introduction to our legal system and allows students to learn about a fascinating subject, which covers many aspects of life. During the course, students will:
- Develop an understanding of law and how it works
- Learn more about society from a legal perspective, both contemporary and historical
- Learn about the interaction between law and morals, justice and society
- Learn about different areas of law e.g. criminal, human rights, contract and tort
- Make connections with business, economics, history, politics and technology
- Develop academic skills, including analysis and evaluation
- Be able to make an informed decision about future careers.
Some students take A Level Law because they already know that they want to pursue a career in it. The course provides an excellent introduction to a university law degree or to a legal apprenticeship. It demystifies the our legal system.
A Level Law is not just for students who want to enter the legal profession. It is a well respected subject and is a welcome addition to many A Level programmes of study, linking in well with Science, Social Science or Humanities subjects, such as history, sociology, philosophy, economics and business to name just a few.
So if you’re interested in becoming a solicitor, barrister or legal executive, if you’re interested in a career in business, politics or government, or if you just enjoy debating controversial issues, then A Level Law might just be for you.
