Whilst you don't need to have studied Law at A level to go on to study it at university it is a subject that won't hold you back should you consider doing so. In brief the study of Law at this level includes the role of various legal institutions, the legal profession and how laws are made. It also looks in detail into how the law is applied and this ability to understand, analyse and apply is more important than just knowing your cases. As with any A level you'll be expected to gain and retain a comprehensive body of knowledge.

To be able to succeed in Law at this level you need to be able to carefully craft essay answers which hit the exact points that an examiner is looking for. One way of gaining and improving this skill is to utilise the comprehensive collection of essay examples that Marked by Teachers can offer.

Being both a literate and analytical subject, A level Law is of great value in preparing you for courses in the humanities and in the social and economic sciences.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Critically evaluate the law on intention as part of mens rea

    "In conclusion when looking at the law of intent as a part of mens rea it is important to distinguish between oblique intent and direct intent. Whilst direct intent is fairly straight forward, however this is not the case in oblique intent. When looking at oblique intent, as was made clear in Woolin, the defendant's knowledge is an important factor."

  • The law on attempts has now been settled Discuss

    "In conclusion I think that the law on attempts has now been settled as the courts now have guidance on when to convict for any crime. The Court of Appeal have settled attempted murder alleges and also the relevance of recklessness has been settled. However, despite all this guidance, some cases have still been wrongly decided. This was seen in the appeal of Attorney - General's reference (No 1 of 1992), where Court of Appeal held the D was only in short of committing the offence itself."

  • Critically discuss the Labour Governments record of crime control since coming to power in 1997

    "In conclusion, it can be seen that under the Labour Government since 1997, crime seems to have decreased by using the more reliable BCS figures. However, the public perception is that crime has gone up a lot, and one must question why this is, and whether the Labour government are trying to create this impression in order to support their position of being ‘tough on crime’"
