AS Law requires students to study areas such as the civil and criminal justice systems, the application of the law to scenarios and the law of tort.
At A2, learners will study criminal law and human rights law, providing them with a breadth of knowledge of core legal subjects. Throughout both AS and A2 level, learners will develop legal skills such as applying the law, formulating a legal argument, analysing a factual scenario and evaluating the law.
Students wishing to study Law at university will not be disadvantaged by studying A Level Law. The course helps them prepare for the LNat test and develops students’ legal skills. Law has links with Politics; it also develops analytical and evaluative written skills which support a number of other studies including English and History.
6 GCSEs A* – C with a minimum of Grade C in English Language
At least one analytical subject (e.g. English Language, History or Religious Studies) is recommended.
