Level 2 Legal Studies
Legal studies explores the role of law in society and New Zealand’s laws and legal system. To be informed citizens, young people need an understanding of the concepts, principles, and processes that provide the foundations for our legal system and of the issues that confront it. Legal studies offers students the opportunity to gain such understanding in a New Zealand and a global context. Students are encouraged to learn in a collaborative environment and to reflect on -and be considerate of- opinions of others that may well differ due to cultural, moral, ethical, environmental, political and social backgrounds.
What Knowledge Will I Develop?
The course aims to empower students with a wide knowledge base that assists them to be informed lifelong learners and contributors to society when dealing with a wide range of legal applications. We cover systems of government, reasons behind crimes and our delivery of justice, consumer law, rights and responsibilities of students.
