Please note, we will no longer be taking registrations for this subject for the June 2023 cohort (Sept 2021 - June 2023) This course aims to provide learners with an introduction to the main principles of the law as it is practised in England and Wales. As a result, learners build their knowledge and understanding of the English legal system, and develop a critical awareness of its structure, personnel and operation. The syllabus also focuses on two areas of substantive law (contract and tort), and encourages learners to develop skills of analysis and problem-solving through the application of legal rules.

The Benefits

Taking International AS and A Level Law will enable students to:
  • become experienced in a wide range of technical and social tools
  • develop skills like time management, communication and digital literacy


Minimum entry requirements

To successfully study Cambridge International AS and A Level with us, students need to have attained:
  • a grade C (or grade 4) and above in IGCSE English and Mathematics (or the equivalent in an internationally recognised qualification).
  • No previous knowledge of Law is required, but an interest in the operations of the legal system is essential.
It is the school’s responsibility to ensure that the student has met these minimum entry requirements. Pamoja Taught courses and Pamoja teachers assume that these minimum entry requirements have been met and the student therefore has the necessary foundational knowledge and ability to work at the pace required by the course.

Activities and assessments

The course includes the following activities: readings and case examinations, quizzes, self-assessments and marked written assignments. Teachers will review and grade assignments during the course. Some assignments require peer review and collaboration. There are also unit discussions to support students with each topic. The final examination consists of four externally-assessed papers:
  • Paper 1—1 hour 30 minutes, 60% AS/30% AL, essay questions
  • Paper 2—1 hour 30 minutes, 40% AS/20% AL, data response essay
  • Paper 3—1 hour 30 minutes, 25% AL, essay questions and scenario-based questions
  • Paper 4—1 hour 30 minutes, 25% AL, essay questions and scenario-based questions

Advice from our teachers

In order to succeed in International AS and A Level Law, we recommend students set aside ten to fifteen hours a week to study. It is important that students regularly keep up with the readings and the course activities in a timely manner. And that they contact their Pamoja teacher if they fall behind or need help with assignments.
