Sources of Law - Edexcel Citizenship

A detailed and well differentiated lesson for Edexcel Citizenship GCSE 9-1 - ‘Law and Justice’ (Theme C). This lesson focuses on fundamental principles of law to uphold rights and freedoms: the rule of law; the presumption of innocence; equality before the law; access to justice, English and Welsh, Scottish and NI legal systems and also the main sources of law: common law (case law or precedent), including parliamentary legislation and the EU.

The lesson includes a detailed PowerPoint, information packs, differentiated activity worksheets, differentiated challenge activities, exam questions with peer assessment markscheme and clips tasks. These resources have been designed to be engaging, detailed and easy to follow.

The PowerPoint and worksheets are in the ZIP file as there’s a lot of content. The images have been uploaded to show a few examples of the slides in the lesson :)
