Mrs A. Lowe

The vision for our law students is that they will develop a passion for the law and understand how the law touches every aspect of our daily lives. Students will study both civil, criminal, and family law which will help them to progress to higher education and professional qualifications, either in law, criminology, the criminal justice, or another sector. It will also help students to progress to employment in the legal profession or in other forms of business. Whilst studying Law at Kingsmead they will develop problem-solving skills and legal research skills. They will use these research skills to investigate the way in which the law is developed and applied. They will have the opportunity to apply the relevant law to a scenario involving a crime. In addition will develop their decision-making and communication skills, as they may have to decide how to advise clients or how the police should respond to a particular situation. They will also develop analytical and critical-thinking skills. Overall, our vison is to ensure that all of our students develop the skills, character and academic understanding to become a well rounded individual serving their community as well as the ability to move forward into their chosen field.
