Court Systems and Jurisdiction



Week 1: Assignment

In each week the learning assignment is designed to demonstrate your competence with the

Terminal Course Objectives of the course. Prior to working on the assignment, you should read

through the week’s chapters and lecture.

The questions are designed to probe the higher levels of thinking and learning such as

analyzing, evaluating and creating, and so there often are no correct answers. Instead of

focusing and who wins or loses the case, you should analyze, evaluate, and create alternative

solutions to the various issues presented while arguing and debating the connections

between business, law, politics, and ethics.
