The law touches nearly all aspects of our lives, and a certain amount of basic legal knowledge is necessary to identify important legal issues that arise in daily life and in various industries. The way that lawyers think and analyze serves as a valuable foundation for individuals in many fields. Learn at an introductory level, from an attorney, about: the legal system in the U.S., what lawyers really do, and how to analyze issues like an attorney, all through real examples and interactive hypotheticals and exercises.
This course will be taught by a practicing attorney who also teaches at the undergraduate, MBA, and law school level. Guest speakers from different areas of the law may be introduced.
Specific topics to include:
Students will learn through varied techniques. While some some seminar style will help to gain background information, the overwhelming emphasis will be on learning through a combination of classroom discussion, in-class group exercises, and realistic/real examples and hypotheticals.
Students will gain familiarity with the U.S. legal system, learn how attorneys think and analyze, and build a general knowledge of the law that will serve as a helpful foundation for understanding how the law interacts with other disciplines that they study and pursue in the future.
