    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Because it is the most interesting combined American History and History of the American Legal system course I have ever taken. We studied from the Magna Carta to early industrial age trials; Indian and slave trials and laws and did reenactments of two historic trials - Burr's Treason and the Sedition Acts Trials. Hopefully he will teach a second half course from 1905 to present. Highly recommend the course, and it is also a major requirement, for Public Policy and Law or Political Science majors, and to any American Studies and International Policy Majors.

    Course highlights:

    There were many highlights, two of which were the trial reenactments and for our final term paper we used electronic/digital history sites which put a whole different perspective on the topics we chose to write about.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Just read the assigned readings, take good notes, and participate in class discussions. Get into the topics each week; think critically; and be relevant to the issues today and how the early forms of trial and trial subjects still relate to modern civics or have resulted in the laws and the courts of today. Especially the Supreme Courts and the Federal courts.
