Available to: Grade 12 students and grade 11 students who previously or concurrently are enrolled in a US History course

This course will build a foundational understanding of America’s civil and criminal legal fields, foundational Supreme Court rulings, and the historical roots of revolutionary conflict stemming from interpretations of justice. Incorporating practical civic literacy, legal competency, and real-world application, students will have the ability to analyze the complexities found in the justice system. The curriculum includes case studies, debates, mock trials, and role-play exercises that will offer tangible application to help students navigate a law-saturated society and provide a window for those interested in pursuing a future in the law. In addition, we will dive into historical events to explore the legal (and often revolutionary) streams that have cultivated conflict in America.
