Class experience

US Grade 5 - 6
The main goal is for students to develop their analytical and critical thinking skills. Students will learn an aspect of civil law and apply this new knowledge when analyzing this case. Students will be asked to think about the utility and ethics of punitive damages and business practices.
I have six years of work experience as a paralegal in both civil and criminal settings. I am completing a law degree in which I received several academic honors and awards. I also worked hard to be second in my class and the areas of Torts (civil law) and Criminal law are my strongest subjects. My work experience has added to my academic studies, as I have real-world experience in what I have studied. Having this real-world experience and relating it to what I am learning in law school has made me even more excited and passionate about becoming an attorney. I have seen through working with my former bosses, and learning about certain cases in school, that being a lawyer can be a very impactful job in the lives of clients'. I hope to share these insights with learners to show them a different side of working in the legal field. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
