Where's the Justice? an Intro to Law Course (FLEX)

In this flex 13 wk class, we identify the origins and evolution of common law- learn forms of government established in history and identify what roles man has played when “…repeated injuries and usurpations” are the norm vs. the exception.

Class Experience

Understanding the histories of civilizations, origins of law and our modern evolving social contract with government has always held my interest- especially in today’s shifting environment of political law.  As such, I have continued to pursue a liberal arts classical education post under-grad.  I fully agree with Abraham Lincoln when he said, “Let reverence for the laws be breathed by every American mother to the lisping babe that prattles on her lap. Let it be taught in the schools, in seminaries, and in colleges.  Let it be written in primers, spelling books and in almanacs.  Let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice.”     I love Richard Maybury's ability to share the evolution and application of law in an easy to understand format - especially its applicability today for our upcoming generations of leaders!  By adding the Power Point, current event articles and reflective application questions,  I know visual learners will more easily understand and evaluate their place in our fluctuating social contract and the role government plays in its success.  I have legal experience in real estate tax law through the Virginia office of James W. Elliott, Esquire and recommendations if necessary.
Weekly assignments of reading the text, watching the video power-point presentations, supplemental videos and articles and interacting with the discussion questions/ posts will be expected for a fuller learning experience.

No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Please note that we discuss the social injustice of racism and discrimination in this study of Twentieth Century World History as it continues to be a part of our human story. From military dictators and monarchies to republics- those whom are our government officials should reflect private as well as public virtue. With the creation of the US Constitution and subsequent republics formed around the world, we have seen HUGE leaps of progress in creating equality in law for all- in quoting the words of John Locke- "Where-ever the law ends, tyranny begins." The social contract between government and man continues to be developed and improved where laws can be passed which sustain an economically stable environment to provide equal opportunity for all regardless of nationality, ethnicity or culture.
