Citizen Law will explore how our justice system is structured and provide you with the knowledge to evaluate and apply these concepts to situations that affect your every day lives. You will actively engage in debates involving real-world topics. This will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the law as it affects you as individuals and members of society. You will research legal concepts and apply them to current legal issues. Participation in mock trials will allow you to experience our legal system in action. Citizen Law will provide you with the knowledge to make your own informed decisions in cases involving ethics and legal issues and provide you with a background of career opportunities in the legal field.

We will explore the following topics this year:

  • Unit 1: Laws, Justice, and You
  • Unit 2: Contract Law
  • Unit 3: The Law of Sales
  • Unit 4: Employment Law
  • Unit 5: Forensics in the Classroom
