Course overview

Take an exciting journey through one of society’s most fascinating creations. Discover Law not as a maze of complex procedure and acts, but as a beautifully crafted system.

The course is available in four formats:

  • Campus
  • Clients' Office
  • Online (Virtual Classroom) with live tutoring
  • Bespoke (Group or 1:1 coaching)

This one-day course in Law addresses a broad range of questions about English law and the justice system. For example, the course provides knowledge on how laws are made and for what purpose; complexities and vagueness of laws; and interpretation of laws by judges.

The course teaches about the legal system in practice: its composition; structures; and procedure in disputes resolution. For example, the course looks into what to expect from lower and higher courts and chances of appeals.

The current issues with access to justice are also covered in the course. For example, what are the barriers to access to justice and what can be done about them.
Additionally, you will be introduced to the impact of psychological factors (biases, individual differences) on justice; and to key differences with other justice systems (e.g. US and Russian Federation).
