Law is a fascinating subject which affects everybody, every day. Law is the skeleton of our society; it controls what we do, when we do it and how we do it. A knowledge of law is useful for every facet of the world around us. Law complements and reciprocates all other subjects as it helps you develop skills you can use across the board. You will improve your essay-writing skills, your communication skills, vocabulary and memory.
To study Law at Bilborough, you need a minimum grade B in GCSE English Language.

Law can lead to a broad range of careers. This A-level may be your first step to becoming a solicitor, barrister, clerk of the court, police officer, journalist, politician, civil servant or teacher, or to your career in business. To give you the best possible footing for higher education, Bilborough Sixth Form College runs law talks and university-style lectures throughout the year, from our own staff and a variety of universities. We will also give you experience of mooting (a mock trial with students playing the parts of barristers, witnesses and other court staff) which is very important if you want to study law at university. You will improve your public-speaking skills and demonstrate strong advocacy skills. We are also proud to offer opportunities for mentorship by current university students who previously studied law at Bilborough Sixth Form College.
