What is law?

Law is a subject which impacts on us all; you’ll study how laws are made and the main principles of the English legal system.

 

What will I study?

You will learn how law is made, in particular by Parliament and judges as well as what our English Legal System is all about. For example there will be an opportunity to study  the routes to becoming a lawyer which will be of particular interest to those who are considering Law as a career. You will also study three specific areas of law: Criminal Law, Tort Law and Contract law. We will visit the Crown and Magistrates’ Courts in Birmingham, invite speakers in to chat about their experiences as Lawyers and use role plays in lessons to act out court room scenarios and mediation sessions in order to give you a taste of what it is like to be a lawyer. A level Law is linear so you will have 3 exams at the end of your second year.

 

 

Trips, visits and enrichments:

  • We visit courts in Birmingham to watch legal cases in action
  • Participation in the national bar mock trial competition
  • Speakers from the legal system deliver information sessions for law students

 

What can it lead to?

Our students go on to study a wide variety of degrees including the LLB and other law-related degrees. Some choose alternative pathways by becoming paralegals, legal apprentices or training to become legal executives.
