Law (2160)

This is our current A-level specification.
For our new specifications see:

AS Law (7161)

A-level Law (7162)

A-level Law develops knowledge and understanding of the English Legal system.

The study of Law at A-level enables students to develop their analytical and critical thinking skills. Studying Law develops students' problem solving skills through the application of legal rules, together with an understanding of legal method and reasoning. These skills provide excellent preparation for those students who wish to progress to degree level study or pursue a wide range of careers.

Our A-level Law specification is designed to encourage and engage students to sustain their interest and enjoyment in law.

This course does not depend upon knowledge gained from our GCSE Law course.
