Why study law?
Law is an excellent qualification for a wide range of university courses, most notably law itself. All students who have studied law at A level and who continue law to degree level, report that they are at a distinct advantage having studied law previously. Universities see the benefits of prospective students having studied law at A level. As well as being excellent preparation for higher education, law is useful for those considering a career in the civil service, banking, media, the police, local government, accountancy, business and of course the legal profession. Additionally, law students have the opportunity to take part in a variety of course related experiences such as:
- Visit to Newcastle Crown Court
- Talk by a solicitor and barrister
- Compete in mock trials with the Law Society
