Law gives students an excellent introduction to the whole area of law making, law interpretation and law enforcement. It is particularly useful for students considering a degree or career in law as they will gain a good general idea of what the law entails in all its complexity.
They will learn the distinction between civil and criminal law: how civil law upholds the rights of the individual and how criminal law tries to maintain order in society.
Both AS and A2 consist of two written papers, in each of which, students answer two structured questions from a choice of four.
There is much to cover and learn but students will find it a fascinating and useful subject, both in itself and in what it may lead to.
