This is a half-year elective course that covers many different topics about the US legal system. American Law is broken up into American Law 1 and 2. We will be covering the basics of law, rights as a US citizen, advocacy groups, the court system, the legal system and process, crimes against the person and property, defenses and lawyers, the investigation process, trials, sentencing, juvenile justice, and torts and marriage between American Law 1 and 2. Students will also search for and discuss current events and relate them to the units and topics from this course. In this class, students are expected to be respectful of one another and know their rights to become a responsibly informed and contributing citizen.
To start the school year, we will be utilizing a remote learning schedule from September 8th - October 9th. The schedules were sent out and should be updated on the calenders.
On October 12th, we will begin hybrid learning. More information will be brought up as this date gets closer.
Because of this, we will be utilizing Google Classroom. Students are required to be on the Google Meet during the scheduled class periods and complete assignments through Google Classroom.
