Law in Action
Each of these assignments asks you to apply the course material by completing a project or providing advice similar to what an actual law student or lawyer might do. You will conduct research, counsel a client, and outline points of law. Often these assignments require you to review additional, short assigned videos or documents, which are available in the Law in Action folder located in the Files section on Canvas.
In each case, unless specified otherwise, your answers should be as short as possible and as long as necessary.
The assignments must be submitted in a Word document on Canvas by the Due Date listed on the syllabus.
