Law is a system of rules usually enforced through a series of institutions. The CAPE Law Syllabus assists persons who wish to embark on further study and training for entry into the legal profession; it also addresses the needs of other persons engaged in occupations which require some knowledge of the law, such as clerks, paralegals, administrators, managers, the police and other public officers.
