Course summary

The Certificate of Higher Education in Legal Studies is a new innovative 12 month programme which is aimed at students who have an interest in public service, law and legal systems, but have not yet decided what career route to take. The programme will help students determine whether they are ready for a HE environment by allowing them to study a range of contemporary and topical subjects. These will include Brexit and devolution in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, the relationship between the media and the law, the intricacies of the English and Welsh legal system and individuals' legal rights in a range of domains. In addition, students will obtain an understanding of social problems and their relationship to crime and society, and how the criminal justice system operates. It will also ensure students obtain a wide range of skills such as communication, referencing, research and interpersonal skills that will prepare them for undergraduate study in a HE environment.
