It is said that without law a man’s life would be ‘brutish, nasty and short’. A level Law gives students an understanding of the role of law in today’s society. In addition to helping students to acquire subject knowledge, studying law helps to develop skills of selection, analysis, critical thinking and decision making, and an awareness of the rights and responsibilities of individuals.
