Law A level at King Edward VI Sixth Form College

Course description

If you are interested in how the laws that affect all our lives are developed and implemented, if you are interested in a legal career then A Level Law is for you. This course involves the study of the main principles of the English legal system.

Where does our law come from? How does the law work? What powers do the Police have? What is the role of judges, barristers and solicitors? Who funds litigation? There will be visits to the courts in Birmingham to watch the law ‘in action’ and the Old Bailey and Supreme Court in London. At A2, you will specialise in one of the substantive areas of tort.

Studying Law will enable you to develop your analytical and evaluative skills, whilst also improving your communication skills through classroom discussions and group work. There is no coursework.
