The BTEC Applied Law Extended Certificate (offered alongside our A-Level programme) will help you gain an initial understanding of the English Legal System plus a detailed study of certain areas of criminal and civil law.
The course will consist of traditional teaching where students will be encouraged to listen, read and access information, developing a critical awareness of legal issues and the ability to analyse and solve legal problems. The course will be made up of four modules, with two being assessed by examinations taken in Year 1 and two in Year 2.
