Law (Applied) BTEC Level 3 Subsidiary Diploma at Queen Mary's College

Course description

The BTEC Level 3 Law course is ideally suited to those with an interest in Law, but who would find it easier to excel in a coursework-based course, rather than an examined one.

The course covers a range of legal topics related to both civil and criminal law. In the first year, students study the sources of law in the English legal system and the operation of the courts in civil and criminal actions. Learning is supported by a range of strategies including independent research, group activities and role plays. In addition, there will be a visit to Winchester Crown Court and a guest speaker from the Magistrates’ Bench.

Completion of the first year programme leads to the award of the National Certificate and provides the core modules for progression to the Subsidiary Diploma.

The second year programme focuses on fatal offences against the person, offences against property, police powers and contract law. These modules provide a more in depth study of the law and provide opportunities to evaluate the current legal rules and to investigate proposals for reform.
