Society has laws that its citizens must follow.  From traffic laws to regulations on how government operates, laws help provide order and structure.  Our lives are guided and regulated by our society’s legal expectations.  Consumer laws help protect us from faulty goods; criminal laws help protect society from those who harm others; and family law handles issues that arise in areas such as divorce and child custody.  This course focuses on the creation and application of laws in various areas of society.  By understanding our court system and how laws are carried out, we become more informed and responsible citizens in our communities and nation.
