I'm replying sooo late so I'm sorry if this isn't useful anymore, but anyway the first year is split up into two units - unit 1 is like lay people in the criminal justice system (such as juries) and courts systems and stuff, but some of the topics are alternative dispute resolution, judicial precedent, magistrates and how these work, what the advantages and disadvantages are etc.

Unit 2 is split into criminal law and tort law. Tort law is just negligence, which includes stuff like damages and duty of care (this is the section i hate the most lol) and the other section is like principles of criminal law (the components of a crime) and non-fatal offences like assault, battery, ABH, GBH.

I would definitely recommend it, especially if you are considering taking law for your degree, it helped confirm my interest and help me know that i'll actually be good at it. Remember though the spec's changing so it'll contain more tort/contract and less criminal than the current spec
