1 SCHEME OF WORK A-LEVEL LAW LAW02 The Concept of Liability For use in exams from 2015 Copyright 2014 AQA and its licensors. All rights reserved

2 This Scheme of Work is for guidance only: it is a suggestion from a current teacher of how the LAW02 course might be structured. It assumes that 14 weeks teaching will be available for this unit and a similar period for LAW01, and that students will sit exams in both LAW01 and LAW02 at the end of the AS course. It also assumes that students arrive with little or no prior knowledge. A short period of time will be required for induction activities to introduce the subject, to include: showing the difference between civil and criminal laws and cases discussing where laws come from considering who is involved in the civil and criminal justice systems. There is also the possibility of considering progression and careers with a qualification in Law. Visits from professional lawyers and past students will help to show students what can be done with a Law qualification. Any unused time after completion of study material can be used for exam revision. The LAW02 paper requires students to answer all questions on criminal liability and either tort or contract. Each year, it obvious from the exam papers that many students disadvantage themselves as they do not finish answering all the required questions on the paper. You should therefore build in some time to practise answering questions within the time allocated, throughout this paper. 2 of 10
