Judge for Yourself: Constitutional Law
Judge for Yourself is a highly interactive course designed to allow the student to apply the Bill of Rights, U.S. Constitution and U.S. Supreme Court cases to actual factual scenarios and court cases. How will you decide the outcome?
In addition to synthesizing the interplay of these critical documents in protecting our God-given rights and freedoms, students will develop a case notebook of newspaper and/or magazine articles and summaries of news reports or radio broadcasts pertaining to issues relevant to the Bill of Rights and U.S. Constitution. The notebooks will be a resource for the student in critically analyzing and discussing current legal issues and cases. Students will have an opportunity to participate in a Mock Trial utilizing concepts learned in this course.
