White, Darcelle D.
This study guide is designed to assist students in preparing for the legal terminology portion of the Business Professionals of America Legal Concepts Competitive Event. The guide can also be used by secondary students who are being introduced to basic legal concepts. The guide provides materials to help students to learn the definitions of legal terminology and to learn how issues surrounding that terminology might arise in a law office setting. The materials create a scenario of a fictitious company and its relationship with its lawyers, and include typical documents that might be used, with explanations of the terms as they are encountered. (The guide's definitions for most of the legal terminology are not traditional but were created in everyday language that all students can understand.) Contains 10 references. (KC)
