Why Should You Study A-Level Law?

A-Level Law is a challenging and rewarding subject that provides students with an in-depth understanding of the legal system and the principles of law. Through the study of A-Level Law, students will develop a range of skills, including critical thinking, analysis, and problem-solving, which will prepare them for a wide range of careers.

One of the key topics covered in A-Level Law is the sources of law. Understanding the sources of law is essential for anyone studying law, as it forms the foundation of the legal system. The sources of law can be divided into two categories: primary and secondary sources.

Primary sources of law include Acts of Parliament and constitutional documents such as Magna Carta and Bill of Rights. These sources of law establish the fundamental principles and framework of the legal system, and are often referred to in court cases to interpret the law.

Secondary sources of law include case law, legal textbooks, and academic articles. These sources of law provide guidance on how to apply the law in specific situations, and can be used to support legal arguments in court cases.

In addition to the sources of law, A-Level Law covers a wide range of topics, including English legal system, criminal law, contract law, tort law, and human rights law. These topics are explored in-depth, with students developing a detailed understanding of the law and its application in real-world scenarios.

A-Level Law is an excellent choice for students who are interested in the legal system and want to develop the skills and knowledge needed for a career in law, business, or politics. Through the study of A-Level Law, students will gain a deep understanding of the law and its application, as well as the critical thinking and analysis skills needed to succeed in a range of professions.
