CILEx Award in Legal Studies

This exciting course is perfect if you would like to develop your knowledge of how laws are made and by whom, and gives an overview of how the legal system operates in relation to both civil and criminal matters. You will also develop an understanding of the principles of criminal law, and be able to identify the constituent parts of a crime and the basis of criminal culpability.

This short course is ideal if you are currently employed or seeking employment in an area in which a basic knowledge of law will be beneficial, or if you have an interest in law and wish to develop your knowledge of the subject while gaining a professionally recognised qualification.

The qualification is delivered over one evening session per week, with two start dates in September and February.

If you are aged 19 and over you may have options to help fund your studies with us. The funding you can receive depends on your personal circumstances, and could mean you are entitled to free or reduced course fees. You may also be entitled to support with travel, childcare and equipment. To find out exactly what you could receive, contact our Helpzone team on 08000 380 123 for a free, impartial appointment, with no commitment necessary.

I was first made aware of South Devon College through my employers at Scott Richards Solicitors. Since enrolling I’ve always felt supported by the tutors at the College. Our regular chats really help to ease any concerns I may have and put me back on track to progressing. There’s a flexible approach to the learning experience here, allowing me to balance a busy schedule.Naomi Corp
