The purpose of Law 30 is to assist you to become an active, informed and productive citizen who knows and understands your legal rights and responsibilities. Through the course, you will develop an understanding of the concept of rule of law, and learn that the law reflects, and is shaped by, society's values and attitudes regarding social and human relationships. We will first explore the concepts of law and their origins and then look how they apply to current legal issues in Canada and the global community. The 5 Units we will cover in depth include foundations of Canada's legal system, criminal law, civil law, family law and employment and labour law. We will breifly touch on contract and consumer law, environmental law and international law. A major project will be done along side a final exam!
