Law AS Level

Course Overview

With the Law AS Level course you will learn how the law is created and administered within the UK. The study of Law, which is fundamental to the running of society, is a challenging but rewarding option. Studying Law is a way to learn how to analyse situations and apply legal rules and principles to make sense of the world. Those students thinking about a career in Law are the most likely to choose this subject, however, this course is also suitable for students wanting to go into the field of business and/or economics as it fits well with some of the topics covered and is also a versatile subject.

Through your analysis of case studies and other work on your course you will become highly skilled in researching and then assimilating large amounts of information. These are important skills in a vast range of professions in commerce and industry. You will develop strong oral and written communications skills and you will learn to approach tasks in a clear, reasoned and logical way. You will also become an effective problem-solver through studying this course.

AS Law can be studied alongside every other course that we offer, without exception. Many students also take English Literature, English Language, Business Studies, Economics, and History alongside AS Law. The Law AS course works well with subjects that are analytical in nature and that require a high level of reading and writing.

Our students have gone on to some fantastic careers in a wide range of industries and enjoyed some exceptional work placements all over the world, helping them open doors to their dream careers. You can read our students’ stories here
