The courseware, with examples, self-quizzes and citations embedded, is designed to clearly convey and teach legal rules and concepts in a variety of legal fields. While sufficiently advanced to constitute college-level law-based coursework, the courseware is also accessible to the layperson and to the professional who wishes to gain foundational knowledge in particular areas of law.
