Law AS & A Level at Richard Huish College

Course description

Law is a subject that is both fascinating and applied in a number of contexts including the police, the courts and all the ancillary industries associated with it. Law trains the mind to think logically and that is a skill required in many types of work. Many of our students have developed links with local law firms and have gone on to train with them.

Knowledge of the law gives you more power over your life and builds your confidence when dealing with others.  Awareness of peoples rights and responsibilities under the law is important in the modern world.

  • How laws are made
  • The work of the civil and criminal courts
