Why study Law?
Law is a valuable subject, as it affects so much of our lives. It is, therefore, it is important to understand the law making process. The course allows you to question a Barrister who will come to the College and give you a talk on the legal profession and to see how the legal profession operates in a court of law by visiting the courts and seeing the Barristers and Judges at work. Towards the end of the year, you will be given the opportunity to apply your legal knowledge in a mock trial. This allows you to develop your oral communication skills, which are valuable in interviews and everyday life.
