A Level Law

Course Content

Should we always obey the law? What is the meaning of justice? Is it permissible to shoot someone in self-defence? How are laws made? Should prisoners have the right to vote? A Level Law covers all these topics and many more, including the role of pressure groups, factors influencing sentencing, the role of the EU in relation to British law, the diversity of moral views in the UK and the workings of the criminal justice system.

It is a fascinating subject to study and combines well with subjects such as Sociology, Religious Studies, Government and Politics and Economics. The Law department has organised many trips for students, including to Parliament, The Old Bailey and to Auschwitz in Poland. Visiting speakers are invited in regularly and students take part in mock trials.


Many students who study Law at A Level go on to study Law at University and thereafter to careers as solicitors, barristers and other legal professionals.
