Canadian Law

This introductory course is designed to introduce the student to the historical context and operation of our legal system, the institutions within the system, roles of persons within those institutions and the process of thought which applies to current Canadian legal issues. Students in this course should gain a general understanding of how laws are defined, created, implemented and interpreted to give meaning and solutions to modern social problems. Students will apply the function of law in a practical manner through case scenarios and/or case analyses. Students will be evaluated using a combination of mind maps, in-process assignments, discussions and/or debates participation, work sheets, quizzes and two assignments.
