Law Studies

  •      The Law Studies class is a practical program of legal education designed to engage 8th grade students in a critical examination of their legal responsibilities and rights.  In this elective, students have the opportunity to engage in discussions, research, and legal arguments with their classmates about practical legal problems, contemporary legal issues, and the ramifications of breaking the law. 

          The goals of the class are to provide a practical understanding of law and the legal system useful to students in their everyday lives and to improve understanding of the fundamental principles and values of our Constitution, laws, and legal system.
