This is an A Level course

The study of Law will help you to develop your analytical ability and critical thinking.  It also develops problem solving skills through the application of legal rules.  At AS, students develop a knowledge and understanding of the legal system and an ability to evaluate its operation and performance.  They will have the opportunity to apply simple elements of criminal law and civil law in the form of contract law.  At A2 students will then further develop their knowledge of legal systems and be able to evaluate the different concepts of law through real life cases and visits to law courts.  

Throughout the course we encourage students to develop and sustain their interest and enjoyment in Law along with:

  • develop knowledge and understanding in specific areas of law;
  • gain an understanding of legal methods and reasoning;
  • start to develop techniques of logical reasoning and analytical skills and solve problems by applying legal rules to them;
  • develop the ability to communicate legal arguments and conclusions.
