Law at Range High School

Course description

Studying Law at Range offers the opportunity to learn about Law, what they are, how they made, who makes them and how they are enforced.

As well as covering the subjects from an academic perspective, namely:
* Constitutional
* Criminal
* EU Law
* English Legal System
* Sources of Law

You will also gain a practical insight by:
* Attending courts, both Magistrates and Crown
* Law Conferences
* Visits to the Houses of Parliament and Royal Courts of Justice in London.

The OCR course provides a grounding in the main principles of English and European Law and their developments. Students' knowledge and understanding is enhanced by studying court structure, staff and duties and functions. Students develop techniques of ordered thinking and acquire skills necessary to analyse and solve problems by applying legal rules. Students are encouraged to be critical of the changing nature of the legal system. Students develop the ability to argue legally and gain an understanding of not just legal issues but also moral concerns in society through a consideration of the principles involved.
