Why Should You Take This Course?

There has always been a myth that studying A Level Law will prevent you from studying it at university, however this is not true. To dispel these rumours, it is worth considering the view of University of Cambridge: “While we are aware of the perception by some that studying Law at A Level might be considered a ‘negative’, we are somewhat puzzled by this. The clear view taken here in Cambridge on Law at A Level is a ‘neutral’ one. So taking Law as an A Level subject does not put students at a disadvantage for admission to read Law at Cambridge, nor does it provide an advantage”. The course, along with the exciting trips on offer, will give you knowledge of a broad range of legal topics and transferable critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Course Content
Students will develop knowledge of the law in England and an awareness of the law in a global and European context. Subjects include:

  • English Legal System and Criminal Law
  • Law Making and Tort Law
  • Nature of Law and Contract Law
  • There is also an opportunity to take part in mooting competitions in the local Magistrates’ Court in Hastings.

How will I be assessed?
You will sit three exams.

Are there any special expenses?
There may be trips that enrich the curriculum.

What could I do next?
A Level Law is used to progress onto a single discipline at university or as part of a joint honours degree. it is also an important component in many other degrees such as Business Studies and involves many transferable skills for many other disciplines. Studying Law leads to careers such as a solicitor, barrister, legal executive and paralegal. Recent developments also mean that you can do a higher-level apprenticeship in Law and progress in to the profession.
