Introduction to course
Studying A Level Law at Sir George Monoux College encourages a broad view of the English Legal System. This ranges from the importance of lay people within the law to questions such as; what is the difference between murder and manslaughter? The subject is delivered imaginatively by an enthusiastic team.
In the first year, students will study the role of magistrates and jury members and Judicial Precedent. This is all dealt with in the first unit. The second unit in the first year looks at an Introduction to Criminal Law and an Introduction to the Law of Tort (i.e. civil law).
The second year of the course looks at Criminal Law relating to murder and manslaughter. Students will also study offences against property such as theft, robbery, burglary and criminal damage.
B grades in English and a Humanities-related subject.
