Curriculum Intent

It is our intent for students to have knowledge of the key areas of English Law: dispute solving in civil law; investigating aspects of criminal law and the legal system and applying the law. Students will develop the academic skills of application, analysis, evaluation and research. Students will practice employability skills including: cognitive and problem solving skills; intrapersonal skills and interpersonal skills. Students will have the skills to progress to higher education and ultimately to employment, possibly in the legal sector. 

The course will be taught using a wide range of case studies and legal texts and students will discover the rich history of our legal system which underpins British Values.
