Eduqas A Level Law



Course Overview

The Eduqas A level in law enables learners to develop an understanding of both public and private law within the law of England and Wales and develop skills which will prepare them for further undergraduate study and future careers. This specification enables learners to develop their ability to analyse both legal rules and principles and factual issues. It enables learners to construct persuasive legal arguments and to evaluate the strength of such arguments. It also enables learners to develop the ability to think critically about the role of law in society.

At Tollbar we are confident students will enjoy this specification with its in depth look at how the legal system works, the Criminal Justice system and the rights we have as citizens and consumers in the UK. Included are many contemporary case studies and theories to keep content fresh, relevant and engaging.

Topics are clearly structured and include:

  • The Legal System
  • Criminal Law
  • Law Making
  • The Law of Tort
  • Human Rights Law
