    A Level Law

Introduction

Through this exciting and topical course students will gain an understanding of the English Legal system, incorporating an overview of the law making process, legal institutions, civil and criminal law. Studying Law develops students’ problem solving skills through the application of legal rules, together with an understanding of legal method and reasoning. In addition students will become practiced at presenting logically constructed and detailed written work. These skills complement other essay based subjects and provide excellent preparation for those students who wish to progress to degree level study or pursue a wide range of careers.

Entry Requirements

No prior experience of Law is required. However, a GCSE grade 5 in English or a Humanities subject e.g. History, Geography or Religious Studies is required.

Curriculum Overview & Exam Information

We have included curriculum overviews as well as exam information to support students and parents/carers to have a better and broader understanding of how learning develops in each year group. The curriculum overview documents below indicate: the knowledge, skills and understanding that students will gain, how this unit builds on prior learning, and what mastery will look like for each year group. This year, we have added a catch up summary at the beginning to outline how we will catch up on lost learning during school closure. The red writing also indicates where the curriculum has been changed this academic year to support student catch up.
