    Hey, so I finished my A level exams in June, but if anyone needs help with A level Law, whether it be notes, revision methods, names of acts, cases, sample or model answers, feel free to ask here!

    I studied both AS + A2 Law
    AS Law was made up of Unit 1 (Law making and the Legal System) and Unit 2 (Concept of Liabililty)
    A2 Law was Unit 3 Criminal Law (Offences Against the Person) and Unit 4 Criminal Law (Offences Against Property)

    The spec is here

    Textbook I used (A2 Law)

    Here's some revision websites and Youtube videos I used:
    Law Bank
    Sixthform Law
    A Level Law Doomby
    GetRevising
    elawresources
    elawstudent
    Revision World

    The Student Room's A level Law notes

    I have wayyy more notes and model answers which I'd be willing to upload to a Google Drive folder or post them here, just ask me or PM me if you want them!

    How did you revise?
    I mainly used past papers and model answers. For remembering cases I used flashcards. For acts I kind of just remembered them I don't know how to explain it, it's a lot easier remembering acts

    Best advice to a student considering A level law/studying A level law?
    Make notes from the start. Colour code them and organise all your notes into different coloured ringbinders/arch-lever file folders. Make lots of flashcards and test yourself daily, weekly etc. Answer past papers twice a week and ask your teacher to mark them or you can mark them yourself but teachers are better as their feedback is like the examiner's in the real exam. Try to study with a friend who's also studying A level law or even if they're not ask them to ask you cases, acts, etc, or ask your family

    If you have any questions please ask me here. Good luck if you're studying A level Law

    I'm so happy and proud of myself! All the hard work paid off and all that stress and worrying was all for nothing!
    Work hard, believe in yourself and never give up!

    I’m interested in taking Law AS and A2 with edexcel but I cannot find a textbook online. Is there going to be any difference if I study from the OCR or AQA text book?

    Let me first say thanks to you for taking the time off to write such a good post. There are a few here who set a daily target of posts to achieve but collectively, their input is nowhere near yours. I really hope you stay on this forum and continue sharing with us about your academic tips, notes and journey.

    thank you.

    Hi, first of all I like your username and second, I've found a thread about Edexcel AS and A2 Law, maybe check here?

    I'm not sure how the Edexcel A Level Law spec works, is this the spec or is it this
    If the spec and exam layout is quite similar to AQA or OCR then I suggest studying from the AQA or OCR textbooks. It's strange how there's no Edexcel textbooks for A Level Law, I'd assume the reason is because not a lot of people teach/study it. I think the best answers will be from your teacher or if you can ask any teacher teaching A level Law in your school/college, as they'll be better equipped with this than me as I was taught AQA A Level Law for 2 years.
    For revision notes, use the websites I listed above and this (especially A Level Doomby, it's amazing!) as they'll be pretty much the same for your course, I think. Here's some revision resources from getrevising (the student room owns this website, it's really good!)

    If you need anymore help, feel free to PM me or ask in this thread. Hope you have a nice day!

    Congratulations on your A level results - are you looking to study Law at University? Thank you for the tips and advice. I am studying AQA A level Law - our teacher has been off on maternity leave and we have supply teachers covering our lessons - I don’t feel I’m on track to do well and I really wanted to do Law at Uni - I’m having second thoughts now - would you please share your model esssys for each of the 4 units? I would be very grateful - thanks.
