Law 12

Can you be guilty of murder if you kill someone while sleepwalking? What are your rights if a police officer stops you and demands to search your car? What can you do if you’re fired without a good reason? Who will inherit your millions when you die? Law 12 considers these questions by looking at the main elements of law in Canada: criminal law, constitutional law, civil law, and family law. The course will contain case-study seminars and projects as the primary methods of learning. We’ll also visit the law courts, interview a lawyer, and of course, hold mock trials.
