The study of Law involves understanding the systems in place and the personnel involved in making the rules and regulations, which guide the conduct and behaviour of society. On the law A-Level course you will learn about the different types of Law from Criminal Law to Civil Law, the differences between them and the types of punishments that you can receive for breaking the law.
When combined with other written subjects, Law enables students to progress to University to read Law and with further qualifications, become a Barrister or Solicitor. Many of our students have progressed to prestigious institutions, including Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, Manchester, London School of Economics, Lancaster and Leeds. It is also possible to complete A-Level Law and go straight into work and apprenticeships, often in Law-related fields.
At least five 5s at GCSE, including at least a 6 in English Language or English Literature.
Have you considered studying a Mixed Programme (A-Levels and BTECs)? Whether you’re on target to achieve five 5s in your GCSEs or not, there may still be an option to study A-Levels alongside a BTEC qualification at Newman.
