Course Overview

A-Level Law develops knowledge and understanding of the English Legal system. Students will learn how laws are made, interpreted and applied; study, evaluate and apply case law developed by the judiciary and analyse how well our legal system delivers justice. Students will be required to confidently express their views (backing them up with evidence) and to reflect on up-to-date issues in modern society.

In addition to learning substantive law, many students enjoy the practical application of the subject, which encourages a critical evaluation of material encountered in their everyday lives. How do we decide who is right and who is wrong?

This A-Level is awarded by AQA.

A-Level Law is an inspiring and academically demanding course. The course will enable you to develop your problem-solving, analytical, critical thinking and evaluation skills and will encourage you to think independently. These skills provide excellent preparation for progression onto degree level study as well as a wide range of careers.

Students will complete an in-house assessment in Year 1 and the full A-Level in Year 2.

Law is taught by Daniel Millican, a solicitor with a postgraduate qualification from the University of Oxford and fourteen years' experience in legal practice.

Entry Requirements

5 GCSEs at grade 5 or above which must include Maths, and English Language at grade 6.

Adult Learners:
Our A-Level courses are designed to be part of our sixth form, 'KC Sixth', and studied full-time (3-4 subjects). They have 3 classes on different days across each week & are run over two academic years with a tutorial provision alongside them. If you want to study A-Levels part-time (1-2 subjects), please email, and Student Services will contact you to discuss this further. Alternatively, we offer a fast-track route to Higher Education via our Access to HE courses, which are specifically designed for adult students.

After Your Course

Whilst not essential for entry to a Law degree, an A-Level in Law can be beneficial as it demonstrates a commitment to the subject, and will help to prepare you for the modules studied at degree level.

The skills developed from A-Level Law are broad-ranging and provide excellent preparation for those students who wish pursue a wide range of careers including business, health and social care, the police, probationary service and youth work.
