The way in which judges make law will be investigated as will the structure and role of the Courts. An understanding of substantive law will include the study and application of Criminal Law (offences against the person), Tort Law and the Law of Contract.
You will study:

- Criminal Law

During the course you will develop transferable and higher-order skills that are highly regarded by both Higher Education providers and employers.
