I used these lessons in my high school Criminal Law class, and I took Criminal Law in law school.
There is no homework outside of class, but discussions may overflow to the online classroom.
1 file available upon enrollmentEither print out the Discussion Outline or have it available to type on for the class.
Assessment will be done as we move through the class during discussion.

With all of my Criminal Law or Criminal Procedure classes, I strongly encourage parents to look over the Discussion Outlines to make sure the content is suitable for their learner. We discuss crimes of all sort, ranging from murder to property crimes, so please be aware of that. Please message me if you have any issues.
