LSTU 500S Introduction to the Legal System 3.0 Credits
This course will begin to help students "think like lawyers" by providing an overview of the United States legal system. It will explain the legislative and judicial processes, so that students will gain an understanding of where the power to regulate originates and the basis of federal law and regulations. The course will then focus on substantive areas of the law, such as torts, contracts, and criminal law.
College/Department: Thomas R. Kline School of Law Repeat Status: Can be repeated 1 times for 6 credits
In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
For additional information, and an up-to-date list of the writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Drexel University Writing Center page
