In the first year of study you will be given an introduction to criminal law and tort law, studying negligence and occupier’s liability. In the second year you will also study tort law, looking at vicarious liability and defences. In addition to this, you will study either human rights or look in depth at the nature of law in a wider context, developing your understanding of how the law interacts with morality, justice, society and technology.
Many of our students go on to study law at university, allowing them to access careers in the legal system, teaching profession, police force and prison sector, amongst others. However, the study of law at A level also develops critical thinking skills that provide excellent preparation for a wide range of further study and career options.
