A-Level Law is a two-year linear program, with students sitting three examinations at the end of the course. These three examinations will form the A-Level grade. Throughout the two years students will receive regular assessments in the style of the examination. Additionally, students can expect to be assessed through activities in the lesson. All work will be assessed against examination board standards with all work receiving feedback.

Upon completing this course you will be equipped to move on to university, a higher apprenticeship or employment. Law is a highly regarded subject and can lead to many careers besides law and the legal system.

Students will be expected to purchase the recommended year one textbook. It is beneficial for students to have two lever-arch folders and file dividers to keep lesson material organised.

In year two students will be required to purchase the recommended second year textbook and one lever-arch folder with file dividers

Studying A level Law will expose you to industry professionals who will share a wealth of knowledge and experience with students giving an insight to the real world of law. Teachers also organise informative careers talks and will keep you up to date with any University/careers opportunities that arise within the legal field.
