Thank you so much
The purpose of this Unit 25 English Legal System is to provide learners with an understanding of the sources of English law, the courts and their personnel and the different legal business entities.
The unit looks at the English legal system in detail. It will develop learners’ understanding of the court structures, both civil and criminal. Court procedures, funding and legal personnel are evaluated, as are alternative methods of settling disputes. The importance of the different sources of law, their development and interpretation are assessed and analysed. Finally, the unit considers the legal formalities required for the formation of the different business entities, their management and dissolution. The unit seeks to enable learners to develop the ability to apply this understanding of the law in given situations.
Learners must have access to a learning resource centre with a good range of legal text and case books. These must be supported by journal, statutes and law reports. Newspapers are also necessary because of the topical nature of law.
