Applied Law (BTEC Level 3) Course
The BTEC Level 3 in Applied Law qualification is designed to provide a highly specialist, work-centred qualification in Law. It will give you the knowledge, understanding and skills that you need to prepare for employment.
BTECs are a vocational qualification and are viewed by many universities as being equivalent to an A Level.
What we’ll study
The course includes mandatory units: Dispute Solving in the Legal System, Understanding Law Making and Aspects of Legal Liability. These give learners an introduction to the court structure – both civil and criminal, the ways in which Law is made and elements of substantive civil and criminal law in the form of negligence and non-fatal offences to the person.
There are also optional units, which include the following:
• Unlawful homicide and police powers
• Aspects of property offences and police powers
• Contract Law
• Consumer Law
• Aspects of the Law of Tort
