With the Express Route, students can complete their A-Levels in just 11 months, from January to November and are able to start their first year Degree in Business or Law in the January and actually begin their second year of their Degree Course in the September, saving a year on their overall studies - Graduate faster. We generally restrict students who take this option to 2 A-Levels, but this is the normal entrance level to our UK university partners where in most cases students in Law or Business study their first two years in Malaysia then go the the UK for their final year, unless they would prefer to study all three years in just one country.

Law Oxford Gap Year (for ages 17-19)

Oxford Royale Academy
Campus Full time 10 - 12  January 2017 United Kingdom Oxford Yarnton + 1 more

The Law Oxford Gap Year programme provides prospective Law students with the chance to develop their academic understanding of the law through tuition and guided research. [+]

Introduction Whether you are thinking of studying Law as an undergraduate degree or as part of a graduate conversion course, this course is designed to set you on the right path to achieving your ambitions. The course also encourages development in wider skills essential to the successful study and practice of the law, including communication, academic writing, critical thinking and knowledge of current affairs. The Project As with all of our Oxford Gap Year subjects, the Law course focuses on the production of an extended piece of writing that the student must research and produce independently under the guidance of our tutors. Typically this consists of a thesis on a specific topic within the law, often an area of controversy or something featuring heavily in the news, although there is scope for producing something other than a thesis. Possible thesis titles and topics include: The UK’s uncodified constitution and the separation of powers: who really holds the power in the UK? Brexit: The legal case for and against Britain’s exit from the EU Euthanasia: reconciling legal, moral and ethical values The development of the law from ancient times to the present Topics Covered Following an initial Orientation Week, tutoring at our International Study Centre begins. This phase introduces the student to some of the fundamental areas of the law, covering the following modules: Introduction to Law and the English Legal System Contract Law The Law of Tort Criminal Law Constitutional Law Legal Skills The following skills workshops are also available at an additional cost: Academic writing General English Debating and public speaking Management, leadership and team building UCAS, personal statements and university applications IELTS preparation Students will cover key information within these areas of the law and will also focus on a number of important case studies. The aim is to provide students with a sufficient platform to enable them to devise suitable topics for their Project, as well as specific case studies and examples into which they can conduct further research. Students will be expected to do considerable out-of-class study during this phase in order to fully grasp the material covered in class. Example Trip Students on the Law Gap Year course have the enviable opportunity to witness real-life court action at one of the Oxford courtrooms. Learning not only from the dialogue between defence and prosecution parties, students gain a broader understanding of the processes and functions of the British legal system, some of which are common across other countries both inside and outside of the EU. Why Take the Law Oxford Gap Year programme? Getting a head-start is vital in a field as competitive as Law. ORA’s Law Gap Year programme will help you grow in understanding of the areas that underpin the legal system in the UK, as well as giving your study skills a boost. It will enhance your ability to think critically and conduct independent research into a topic – traits that are invaluable to modern employers – and will provide an introduction to more specialist legal skills such as writing legal letters. The course is therefore an ideal opportunity for students on a gap year looking to use a considerable portion of their year to enhance their future possibilities in the field of Law. Start dates: January, March and September English requirement: IELTS 5.5 (it is not compulsory to have taken an English test) [-]

The legal system provides the rules within which the state’s administration, the business world, individuals and organizations, indeed the whole community operate.

On the sociological monitoring in the law-making process (lecture)

Language: English

Time of courses: Autumn / Spring

The lecture provides an overview of using of sociological monitoring in the law-making process. The substantial criteria of effectiveness of governance structure is its ability to match the long-term goals and values of society and state development, and to guarantee a quality of the legal groundwork set for the changes affecting the country. In order to create a quality legal field, special attention should be paid to the planning of draft law activity, taking into account the strategic goals of state policies for the long-term prospect. In a federal state, for example Russian Federation, strategically oriented legislative activity is impossible without the regular performance of comprehensive analysis of lawmaking activity and legislative enforcement, both on the federal level and in the constituent entities of the Federation. An efficient tool for achieving the tasks is the monitoring of legislation and the analysis of legal enforcement practices (legal monitoring). It forms an integral part of the system of lawmaking, allowing constructing the whole legislative process on a transparent, fundamental legal basis. Legal monitoring has great value in federal state, one where federal and regional legislations are applied simultaneously. Legal monitoring is presently required as a factor unifying the legislative and legal enforcement activities of bodies of power of Federation and its constituent entities, especially in the course of national project implementation.
