Students with AS or A level Law have access to a wide range of possible career and higher education
Studying Law gives students an understanding of the role of Law in today’s society and raises
awareness of the rights and responsibilities of individuals. By learning about legal rules and how and
why they apply to real life, students also develop their analytical ability, decision making, critical
thinking and problem-solving skills. All these skills are highly sought after by higher education and
Taking the Law A-level is a chance to get a taste of Law before you set off on a degree. It could also
give you a head start on some of the skills and knowledge you’ll need at university. For example,
you’ll get used to learning the details of cases, and you’ll know detail about some elements of the
Law that might come in handy later.
At most universities, Law is a perfectly acceptable A-level: it will count towards your offers. Just take
a look at these quotes from Law faculty websites: “We treat Law in the same way as any other
subject.” (Warwick). “No A-level subject is considered any more or less important than any other. Alevel Law is acceptable.” (Bristol).
