What will I study?
This is a two year course covering the main aspects of the English legal system, and civil and criminal law. This course equips students with the legal knowledge and skills required to work in any part of the legal sector. Students achieve the qualification by way of external and internal assessment. The external assessment takes the form of an exam based on pre-seen material, and the internal assessment is assignment based. There are three compulsory units: Dispute Solving in Civil Law, Investigating Aspects of Criminal Law and the Legal System, and Applying the Law. The qualification is completed with a further unit on Aspects of Family Law.
The course provides access to a Law degree and other degree courses. However, due to the practical nature of the course, students often apply for legal apprenticeships.
