The course provides an excellent foundation to those wishing to study for a law or related degree at university, or alternatively those who just have an interest in the law.
During the first year students will study law making including case law, statute law and EU’s influence on our legal system. Students will also study the organisations involved in the criminal justice system by learning about the process of court trials, legal personnel as well as an overview of the civil justice system. Students will also be introduced to the concept of liability through an introduction to criminal law and tort law.
During the second year students will build upon their studies of the English Legal system, tort and criminal law as well as learning the fundamental principles of contract law.
Students will be taught to critically analyse points of law as well as apply the law to real life scenarios.
This course will suit a student who is hard-working, conscientious and is able to construct a well written and structured essay. Students must be able to think analytically and make a reasoned argument.
