A-Level law develops students’ knowledge and understanding of law making, the English Legal System, Criminal law, Tort law, Contract law and the theory of law. Although academically demanding, students will enjoy the application of law to everyday situations. Students will learn the fundamentals of law making and the English legal system through studying Parliamentary Law Making, Delegated Legislation and Law Reform. Within the criminal law topic, students acquire knowledge of the criminal offences of theft, robbery, non-fatal offences, murder and manslaughter. Within tort law, students explore the law of negligence and, within Contract law, develop knowledge of how contracts are created as well as the Consumer Rights Act. Students will also obtain an understanding of the work of those who work within the legal system including: judges, magistrates, barristers and solicitors. Students will develop skills valued by higher education institutions and employers including critical analysis, problem solving, independent thinking, the ability to use authority to illustrate legal principles, and construction of conclusions based on sound reasoning.
