LEG100: Introduction to Law - 4 Hours

This course provides a basic understanding of the American legal system from a variety of perspectives, both civil and criminal. The course focus includes the essential history and the working structure of government, procedural issues in the courts, specific concepts of basic categories of law (including contract, property, civil, business, estates and probate, criminal, and family), the distinctive characteristics of criminal law and procedure, and finally, the roles of various legal professionals and the effect of legal ethics on the practice of law. It is intended that the course lay a solid foundation for those intending to pursue advanced legal courses and to provide a functional appreciation for students of other disciplines with regard to the impact of the legal system on those disciplines.
