This class provides students with an introduction to the American legal system, the procedures used to solve legal disputes in the court systems and the steps in planning for a career in law. Students have an opportunity to survey a variety of substantive areas of law (i.e. property, employment, torts, contracts, criminal law, and alternative dispute resolution). Legal method and reasoning are demonstrated through student writing assignments in case analysis and opinion briefs.
