Course

Law courses develop professional competence in the field of law for prospective lawyers, attorneys, legal assistants, analysts and more. Ranging from Diplomas to Certificates to Courses, some Law courses require a larger time commitment than others. Each law course focuses on a particular area of law. Universities in Civil or Common law countries would offer law courses specific to their local legal system. Many universities also offer international law courses, which focus on international law or skill sets that are applicable in any legal jurisdiction.

While all law courses are diverse in topic and function, each one has its own distinct benefits for the students. In general, law courses provide an opportunity to learn from experienced professors. Law courses are rigorous, challenging and up-to-date, providing the most relevant academic experience. The completion of a law course shows potential employers that the applicant has developed relevant skills in a particular area of law, law practice or paralegal work.

Online law courses are an option for working professionals or individuals with a busy schedule. Law courses can be taken online, with all required materials provided digitally. This omits the requirement to commute to campus to attend classes.

A Level Course

Abacus College & Oxford Language Centre
Campus Full time 1 - 2 years September 2016 United Kingdom Oxford

Choose subjects you are interested in and think you will enjoy. You are then more likely to work hard and achieve good grades. [+]

A Level Course Excellent results from 2014's A-Level students... 23% obtained A* or A grades and 73% A* to C! Why Choose an A Level course? In most countries, students have a general school education and only start to specialise in the subjects of their choice when they enter university. This is one reason why many students choose to come to the UK to join an A Level course, which allows them to choose the three or four subjects in which they are really interested and learn about these subjects in depth. Universities appreciate this knowledge and students who take an A Level course may apply to any university in the UK. How to make your subject choice Choose subjects you are interested in and think you will enjoy. You are then more likely to work hard and achieve good grades. Decide if the subjects you are considering will suit your strengths, such as essay-writing or working with numbers. Look at the requirements for the career you hope to enter and the university course you will take to reach this career objective. For example, if you want to study medicine at university you will need to take Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics. If you want to become an Engineer you will need to take Mathematics and Physics. For Economics and some Business degree courses you will probably be asked for A Level Mathematics. Help in making the right choice In Abacus College we will advise you if you are having any difficulty in deciding which course or which subjects you should take. You may like help in deciding whether a University Foundation Programme or an A Level course is the better way to prepare yourself for entering a university. If you have already chosen an A Level course you may not be certain which are the right subjects for you. If you would like to discuss your future education, we shall be very happy to help you either by phone at +44 (0)1865 240111 or by email at info@abacuscollege.co.uk. A Level course duration Two Year Course Students who have just completed GCSE, IGCSE or an overseas equivalent would normally enrol on the two year A Level course which starts in September. Other students entering this course may have just completed an English language course, in Abacus College’s partner language school Oxford Language Centre or elsewhere. All students are helped, at the start of the first year, to understand the language and terminology of the subjects they are studying. They will then complete the work for the AS examinations, which are taken in May/June. In the second year of the course students study towards the A2 examinations and may also be given the opportunity of improving the marks obtained in the AS examinations, if necessary. Five Term Course This is a shortened version of the two-year course. It starts in January and students prepare for the AS examinations in May/June. The second year is a full year, from September to June, at the end of which the A2 examinations are taken. The five-term course will be a good idea for students who need a term of intensive English first in Oxford Language Centre from September to December in order to obtain the necessary IELTS score for entry to A Level. One Year Intensive Course If you have already taken an A Level course and wish to improve your grades you may enrol for this course.

Course 2016. After extensive preliminary discussions with ISDE's faculty, participating top Legal Firms and Professionals, we structured this program in International Tax Law. ISDE previously offered a course focused on U.S. Tax Law which was a great success for a number of years. However today ISDE has the ability to offer an International and Comparative perspective meaning this course provides essential insight to both European and U.S. professionals. The overarching intent of this prestigious program is to offer students, U.S. and foreign-trained attorneys a course of study designed directly to prepare them to better understand this field of practice in the context where international operations are being carried out worldwide on a daily basis. Considering the growing closeness between the US and European markets with agreements such as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), there is now a new need for lawyers to be aware of new collaborative opportunities that will arise. Objetives and Students The International Tax Law Course is designed to be a practitioner's course and is designed for experienced lawyers, accountants and other professionals with an interest in Finance and Tax Law. Those with a proven interest, experience and knowledge in the field of Taxation who are interested in learning about major elements of the International aspects of Tax Law will also find it extremely beneficial. The course is open as well to recent graduates in Law, Business or Economics interested in learning and getting first hand experience of the International Tax Law rules. As it is ISDE's philosophy, we not only aim to give our students the most up-to-date knowledge about International Taxation, but also to acquire the skills that will help them reach their professional goals. To do this we count on academic staff composed of the most important lecturers in the field of International Tax Law in Europe and in the USA. Their commitment to making this program the best online in International Tax Law is the guarantee of its quality, bringing priceless and unique knowledge to this field for the benefit of trained lawyers and for the Firms themselves, who will find the information invaluable. The program is focused on teaching topics of major elements within the field of International Taxation, which professional Lawyers, Tax or Finance Managers are not overly familiar with. The target student population for the International Tax Law Course is: Attorneys from both civil and common law jurisdictions seeking training in International Tax Law practice. Students of Law, Business or Economics seeking training in International Tax Law practice. Methodology Due to the fact that this Program will be offered to students or already practicing and experienced lawyers, Tax and Finance Managers and other professionals with ongoing activities, it is therefore understood that our students will not be able to make themselves available for a consecutive period of study in New York, and so the studies will be carried out on an "on-line basis". Online learning can provide learning outcomes that are comparable or even superior to those of conventional educational formats. Through an online format students with professional experience are shown to work better when self-directed, as they are already shaped by the accumulation of authentic personal experience. Moreover their desire to learn grows out of a need to confront an ever-changing reality. Given the right tools and with the lecturers, the online methodology and the visit to top Law firms in New York, this course provides students with the knowledge and skills they aimed to acquire when they started the program. Structure The course is divided into 2 parts. The online element consists of 14 lectures combining materials, readings and references, including in some classes recorded videos of 2 or 3 hours of duration from collaborating Firms. Materials and/or Videos will be posted each Monday starting March 30th, 2015. Practical Cases and other materials such as readings, cases and references, will be provided to the students in advance of the class so they can work and have information on each specific topic, being able to download it from ISDE's Online Platform. In some cases, for those students located in NYC, the possibility of attending one of the few Video-Lectures directly from the Firms will be also available. One of the requirements to receive the Certificate at the end of the Course is to complete a test for each lecture, to consolidate an understanding of the topic that has been taught. There is no specific grade to pass the tests in order to receive the Certificate, but it is mandatory to complete them from the online Platform respecting the deadlines that will be established. An email address will be provided in order to send all the questions and doubts that you may have concerning a lecture, materials, topics, professors, etc. In addition, each student will receive all the Firms, Professionals and Lecturers contact information. More importantly, the Firms themselves will receive a copy of the student's CV for their consideration. The second part of the Program will consist of a 1 week visit to New York (this is optional). More information in the following section: TAX LAW WEEK – Encounter in New York. Admissions ISDE manages all admissions. In order to apply all students must send the Program Coordinator an updated copy of their CV and a Motivation Letter of no more than 200 words. Students will be admitted based on their studies, academic record and professional experience. Students may be conditionally admitted to the course if certain ISDE's established conditions are met.
