The course covers the structure and operation of the English legal system, criminal law, property offences, sentencing, contract law and law of tort.

"Law is a subject that entertains as well as educates - it’s very exposing in regards to human behaviour and relationships. The teachers are lovely and make classes very immersive. I come to lessons genuinely interested in what I’m going to learn, rather than focusing on passing an exam.”
