I'm in year 12 and starting my EPQ this year; I really want to do it on contract law but my school doesn't offer a level law so not a great variety of teachers know about it. Is there anyone who could help me choose a sub topic/question to do it on?

Hey! im in year 12 too and im finishing upon my EPQ. i faced a similar problem when i was first choosing my topic for EPQ ; i want to study law at university and i know that if my epq is evolved around law then it'll show my interest for the subject! nevertheless, the school i currently attend doesn't offer A-level Law but i say just follow your gut instinct and choose a topic for law. perhaps choose a topic which is current so are there any crimes showing a significant increase in the media outlet lately? if theyare, do some research and start writing down a few ideas!. I hope all goes well x

As a solicitor I would leave the theoretical side until uni and as the previous poster suggested perhaps consider the legal aspect of recent events such as #metoo or a specific criminal case. If you really want to go down a contract law route you could narrow it down to something like 'What constitutes an acceptance in contract law?

The best EPQs usually end up being ones where you can put the argument for or against something and then draw a conclusion eg. Does the threat of capital punishment deter criminals from committing murder?

Hi - I did my EPQ on medical ethics. None of the science teachers were available to help and in the end my maths teacher was my EPQ mentor. Having a mentor from an unrelated subject is actually quite useful as they can provide different perspectives on the issues you discuss, plus point out where you have made your project too complicated for non-specialists to understand.

I agree with Rover5, contract law epq would be quite niche and ultimately needlessly difficult. Do something a bit more general that taps into multiple areas of law. For example, I did an EPQ that related to Criminal Law, Counter-Terrorism and Public Law. If you want something a bit easier that could relate to contract law but also other areas you could do something like:

"In the light of strike action and COVID-19, how far should Universities and Colleges be legally obliged to refund their students all, or some, of their tuition fees?".

Although, this is still quite difficult.

Something like "To what extent is the UK justice system fit for purpose?" would be more effective.

I completely agree with the above having done both a law-based EPQ and contract law at university. My EPQ was on the whether hate-speech legislation goes far enough - so very easy to draw arguments for and against and then a conclusion (I got an A* and full marks).
