Entry Requirements

An average Attainment 8 score of 5.5 as well as a Grade 6 in English Language or Literature.

What is Law?

Studying Law gives you an understanding of the role of Law in today's society and raises your awareness of the rights and responsibilities of individuals. By learning about legal rules and how and why they apply to real life, you also develop your analytical ability, decision making, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. All these skills are highly sought after by higher education and employers.

The A Level Law syllabus contains three areas of core content and two optional units, one of which must be studied. These are:

1. The nature of law and the English legal system

2. Criminal law

3. Tort

Optional Units:

4. Law of contract

5. Human rights

Apart from lessons, how much time is needed to study this subject?

As an A Level Law student you are advised to spend an additional 4 hours a week studying independently. You will need to complete tasks set in class as well as Independent Learning.

What resources will I need?

The law is constantly changing and it is essential to be well informed of changes to legislation and case law for this subject.

Staying up to date with the news and following the Supreme Court on Twitter are excellent ways of becoming informed about legal decisions.

Investing in a legal dictionary is also worthwhile as legal terminology frequently uses Latin, a language that is generally unfamiliar to most. Having this resource can save time when reading through new case law.

At the start of the course, a reading list will recommend additional texts to aid success at higher grades. EBay and Amazon often sell cheaper copies of these.

How will you be assessed?

This course is assessed by three examinations at the end of two years’ study.  Each paper is two hours long and assesses you through a combination of multiple choice, short answer and extended writing questions however the emphasis is on the skill of extended writing.

Exam board: AQA
