TIDB1020-Law and Order
Course Description: In Henry VI, Shakespeare wrote, "The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers;" however, "all the lawyers" have avoided being killed since that line was written. Why? From the largest corporate mergers to simple adoptions, and from public policy to the enactment of criminal laws, the need for lawyers is increasing because the law is a central part of our daily lives and the bedrock of a free society. Although the press might occasionally indicate otherwise, lawyers are members of a profession and they get respect, but is being a lawyer really like the popular portrayals on television shows such as Law and Order or in a John Grisham novel? This class will help you explore how one becomes a lawyer and what it is like to be a lawyer
Co-requisites: Freshmen only
