Business & Personal Law is a one-semester course that involves the application of legal practices into the individual’s personal life. In addition to studying the development of law, the course discusses civil and criminal law, contracts, property ownership, the court’s function, employment relationships, and a variety of other functions of the law. The class uses real-life examples to relate to many of the class discussions. During the semester we also take a field trip to the Milwaukee County Courthouse to view court proceedings, learn of the different divisions and meet judges. Students will have the opportunity to participate in civil and criminal mock trials. The class will help give students knowledge to apply to their life after high school.
