You will consider contemporary issues, exploring a wide range of interesting cases and Acts of Parliament, improve your knowledge, understanding and critical awareness of a whole range of issues affecting the legal system.
This course is a vocational course that is equivalent to an A-Level and would be studied on a Mixed Study programme. We also offer an A-Level Law course.
