Law AS Level at Highbury College

Course description

A robust legal system is the foundation of a fair society.

If you feel strongly about concepts like justice and equality then this GCE A Level programme could be very rewarding for you.

You might see yourself as a Barrister, a Solicitor, Legal Executive or Legal Secretary.

Alternatively you might want to choose law because it is a fascinating programme that will help you develop transferable skills such as analysis and problem-solving.

Course content

There are four units to the Law GCE.

Units 1 and Unit 2 at AS level, and units 3 and 4 for A Level.

As you progress through the programme you will learn about: law making and the legal system, civil and criminal liability and central concepts of law.

Entry requirements

You will normally be expected to have five academic GCSEs at C or above, including English at grade B.

Acceptance will be subject to interview.


In year one and again in year two you will take two written papers.

Future opportunities

Even if you are not aiming for a career in the legal profession, a grounding in law is valuable on your CV.

That’s because a GCE in Law helps you to think in a very logical way by breaking a problem into its component parts. And in many managerial positions, a basic understanding of law is a distinct advantage.
