Along with the lectures I will have a Power Point presentation which will highlight the points of the lectures with written and picture slides. Homework will consist of finding examples, usually from news sources, of lawyers in society. Outline: I. What do Lawyers do? II. Traits of good lawyers a. Read b. Write c. Think/Analyze ...
I practiced law for 38 years before retiring in 2017. I was an Assistant Public Defender in Florida's Second Judicial Circuit, and spent most my time defending men who had been convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to death. Most of the time I appeared before the Supreme Court of Florida, although I also handled the case in the United States Supreme Court that ended with that court declaring Florida's death [penalty statue unconstitutional. I have also taught US History at a local community college for 15 years and as part of the Outschool faculty for the past year.d.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
For the most part there is nothing objectionable in the course. When I talk about practicing criminal law, however, I will mention some of my practice experiences with death penalty litigation. I will talk about murder, but will not mention, except in the most general way, the facts of a few of the cases I handled. No gory details. Also, I may mention the ethical problems lawyers have when dealing with clients who may want them to "push the envelope" of ethical or even legal conduct. .
