Department Vision

Law is a fascinating subject because it involves the study of how the legal system interprets and directs individual behaviour.  It gives students an understanding of the role of Law in today's society and raises students awareness of their rights and responsibilities, by learning about legal rules and how and why they apply to real life.  Students also develop their analytical ability, decision making, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.  All these skills are highly sought after by higher education and employers.  Engaging topics such as Theft and Murder are clearly structured.  Further study and career opportunities  are available. If you’d like to study Law, Business, Finance or Management at University, A-level Law provides an excellent foundation.  The skills you learn are also transferable across a broad range of subjects and careers.
