Law at Andover College

Course description

Are you curious about finding out more about the Law?

Do the Courts and legal systems interest you?

Would you like to learn about both Civil and Criminal aspects of the Law?

If so, A-level Law is the course for you!
This two year course provides an introduction to the English legal system and its personnel as well as some of the main topics within the law. The subject lecturer is experienced and highly qualified both in Law (Master of Law and Post Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice) and Education (PGCE). Guest speakers from the legal profession provide talks for the students regarding working in the industry.

During the first year the department runs a trip to the Houses of Parliament to allow students the opportunity to see where and how our laws are made. During the second year the department runs a trip to Dublin to allow the students the opportunity to visit a non-operational jail.
You may have heard that Universities would prefer you not to study A-level Law if you are intending to study it at degree level. This is simply NOT TRUE. Whilst Universities do not require it they will not penalise a student who has studied it. In fact, it may even go in your favour as it shows your real interest in the subject. Many of our Law students have gone on to study Law at University and have found the A-level a great foundation.
