Law (Applied) BTEC Level 3

Level BTEC


What will I study?

The BTEC Applied Law course is an enjoyable but challenging way of learning about our English Legal System. There are three units in the first year leading to the Certificate: Dispute Solving and the courts; how laws are made and used; Civil Liability and Criminal Offences. There are three units in the second year leading to the Diploma; Homicide and police powers; Property Offences; and Tort Law. You will be writing essays and problem questions to prepare for university. You will also be completing claim forms and letters, and developing your work based skills.

Is this course right for me?

Do you know your rights? You should consider this subject if you are interested in a career in Law, or studying Law or a Law-related course at university. You may also be interested in this subject if you want to study a 'new' subject which is wholly coursework based.

Where next?

Many of our students have gone to university to study Law or Law-related courses such as Criminology. Others have used their work based skills to seek employment in the legal or business world or as apprentices.
