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.
