A Level Law

  • STRODE'S COLLEGE
  • LEVEL 3

Course Overview

A-Level Law is a challenging course in which you will learn the basic principles of English law and its role in society, criminal offences against people and property and civil law such as tort and contract, also examining principles like justice or fault.

This is an ideal course for those who are interested in pursuing law at higher education with a Law degree or Apprenticeship, preparing learners for this next step. However, it is also suited to those who are simply interested or curious about the subject and how our legal system operates. You will hear from guest speakers who work in the industry – E.g. solicitor, barrister, magistrate and the police. Students who have undertaken this course have gone on to practice law, join the police, pursue business or teach to name just some examples.

Guest speakers – people who practice in the legal system such as a solicitor, a barrister, a magistrate, people who work as part of the criminal justice system such as the police, higher education institutions offering Law such as Royal Holloway University, The University of Law. Activities in A-Level Law that link to industry – mooting competition, mock solicitor interviews, law research presentations, all three units – including the optional unit of contract law that I selected are essential areas of the law covered in higher education in the first year of a degree, foundation degree or an apprenticeship. Exam questions – typically focussed on problem solving scenarios where a Law student must analyse the scenario, explain the relevant law and apply it to reach a reasoned conclusion much like a legal practitioner would.
