Law is a fascinating subject which affects everybody everyday. Each time you catch a bus, go to work, go shopping or eat out law is involved. Law is everywhere!

Students can study Law at GCSE with the specification providing a basic understanding in Law and the relevant skills for progression to A Level Law. It provides grounding in civil and criminal law, focussing on the courts and processes, and also grounding in substantive law through the study of consumer and employment rights and responsibilities.

The specification focuses on the development of skills which are useful for further study and for the workplace. It encourages candidates to develop the skills of problem solving, interpreting source material, data response, analysis, evaluation and extended writing.

The GCSE is engaging and relevant to the everyday lives of candidates through the study of substantive areas of law and rights and responsibilities.
