Overview

Learners on this engaging course will develop knowledge of the law in England and an awareness of the law in a global and European context. There has always been a myth that studying A Level Law will prevent you from studying Law at university, however this is not true. The course, along with the exciting trips on offer, will give you knowledge of a broad range of legal topics and transferable critical thinking and problem solving skills. There is also an opportunity to take part in mooting competitions in the local Magistrates’ Court in Hastings. 

Some people suggest that universities have a negative view of A Level Law. To dispel these rumours, it is worth considering the view of University of Cambridge:

“While we are aware of the perception by some that studying Law at A Level might be considered a ‘negative’, we are somewhat puzzled by this. The clear view taken here in Cambridge on Law at A Level is a ‘neutral’ one. So taking Law as an A Level subject does not put students at a disadvantage for admission to read Law at Cambridge, nor does it provide an advantage”.
