Legal Foundations

OJEN is pleased to present a series of five related handouts designed to provide secondary students with an orientation to law as an academic discipline and a cornerstone of democratic society. Beginning with basic concepts like the rule of law and the nature of constitutionality, these become progressively more sophisticated, as students develop their understanding of different legal systems, institutions and processes. This learning path culminates with a resource on legal philosophy, in which students are asked to take on the perspective of a representative of one of four major schools of thought on law’s relationship to society.
