Next Steps

The A Level gives an excellent introduction for students who want to read law at university or start a legal apprenticeship. Universities recognise the advantages of A Level Law and the old view that it should not be studied has long since faded away. This subject links well with science subjects, humanities and social science subjects.

A-Level in Law

Students will learn about the legal system, law making, the nature of law, criminal law, the law of tort and human rights law or the law of contract. Law students develop a range of skills including the application of legal rules and principles to present an argument, analysis and evaluation of the law, legal issues and concepts.

A-Level Law provides an introduction to law. It allows students to learn about a fascinating subject, one which covers many aspects of life.

Course Content

Year 12

In Year 12 students will learn about how ideas for new laws become a reality. Students will learn in detail about the law making process and the scrutiny which every Bill is under. In addition to this you will learn about pressures on Parliament and how this can impact on the laws which are passed, whether it is a public enquiry like Grenfell or a shocking news story like the ‘Baby P’ case all the media we consume will in some way impact on Parliament’s motives to make new laws. Students will also learn about Tort law and its importance within negligence, students find this particularly interesting as they can apply the legal principles covered during this topic to their everyday lives. The last topic which will be covered in Year 12 is English Legal System; students are given the opportunity to look at the finer details of how our legal system works, roles within legal sectors, powers of police to stop and search and the roles of juries are all included in this area of study.

Year 13

In Year 13 students will study Criminal Law and Contract Law, students will be expected to be able to evaluate each area within the law as well as applying the theory they have covered to scenario questions. Lastly we look at Further Law; this examines theories of law and the history of our legal system.
