This publication outlines a law course intended as part of a business education program in the secondary schools of Manitoba, Canada. The one credit course of study should be taught over a period of 110-120 hours of instruction. It provides students with an introduction to the principles, practices, and consequences of law with regard to torts, contracts, property rights, family, inheritance, crimes, insurance, and employment. While the course is designed to provide background to business and commercial situations, there are many topics dealing with the circumstances found in private life. Students are involved in many activities. They read and discuss textbook selections and newspaper and journal articles, do library research, prepare bulletin boards, take field trips to courts, and develop a scrapbook of newspaper legal cases on crime. The outline first lists the specific goals and objectives. Learning activities and materials are then suggested for the goals and objectives. (RM)
