Teaching styles

Students will learn through a variety of teaching methods with teacher led lessons. Students will complete in class work (including group work, presentations and role play) and independent work (essays, exam practice and research). Students are expected to be pro-active and independent and are encouraged to develop evaluative and analytical problem-solving skills from the beginning of the course. Teaching staff are all Law graduates who have a range of post graduate and professional qualifications, work experience and extensive teaching experience from GCSE to university level.

Assessment

There is no coursework for Law. It is 100% externally examined. Examinations take place at the end of the second year.

Subject combinations

A wide range of combinations are acceptable and Law links particularly well with History, English Literature, Psychology, Sociology, Business Studies and Government and Politics.

Resources and facilities

You will be provided with a textbook for the duration of the course, and with internally produced handouts, assessment resource matrixes, A* challenge resources, activities and revision aids. Staff also help students create independent revision planners for all college holidays.

Key features

We hope to enrich your study by offering a range of additional experiences including enrichment activities focused upon learning more about Britain’s serial killers; trips to the Royal Courts of Justice and Supreme Court in London, and to the Galleries of Justice in Nottingham where students partake in a mock trial; HE events at Law Faculties in the East Midlands including De Montfort, Nottingham Trent and Leicester Universities; visiting speakers from the legal and criminal justice professions, including CILEX. New for 2016-17 was the collaboration with the Faculty of Business and Law at De Montfort University who now facilitate, as part of the College’s BTEC Applied Law course, the opportunity for all students to take part in a one-day legal skills masterclass to work towards presenting a mock trial based on a fictitious case. Students receive tuition and feedback from legal academics and practitioners, and this provides a unique opportunity to benefit from the training that most students of Law do not receive until post-graduate level. This opportunity has been developed to ensure that students have direct interaction with practising members of the legal profession, to embed employability skills and provide the best possible experience from which to progress.

Provisional entry requirements

As part of a Level 3 programme a minimum of five GCSEs at grade A* - C or 4 - 9 are required, including English Language.
