PSPA 3010 - Civil Law♦


(5 cr.) With the exception of the occasional traffic ticket, most individuals do not have many encounters with the criminal justice system. However, frequent interactions with the American legal system through civil law are not uncommon. Students in this course explore family law, employment law, property rights, malpractice issues, torts, and other aspects of civil law. They learn how civil law is relevant to human resource managers, healthcare professionals, and public administrators. Through written assignments and other application-based activities, students further examine topics related to civil law, such as contracts, negligence analysis, independent contractors verses employees, and commercial leases.
