Where does this Lead

A Level Law is excellent preparation for university study. Many of our students enrol on law degrees, or other academic courses, such as history, politics, or criminology. Law affects every aspect of our lives, so having a good understanding of how it works is beneficial in almost any profession, including police and armed forces, teaching, journalism or social care.
