Discussion Assignment: Law in the World around You
Introduction to Canadian Law: Based on the law and the Canadian constitution, as well as branches of government and common and civil law.
Consider the course material for this week, and research, identify, and discuss another example of a legal matter in the news or otherwise in the world around you. Explain why you think this matter is of legal significance.
2.1. Task #1:
Provide an analysis of your legal matter from the world around you in 250 words or less, and post your response to the discussion forum. You might find it helpful to draft your analysis in a word processing program before posting it to the forum. Note that you must start a thread before you can read and reply to other threads in each topic.
2.2. Task #2:
Read the posts of some of your colleagues and select a minimum of one (1) post for which you will prepare a response. In 250 words or less, add your own comment on the legal matter they have identified, either expanding upon or arguing against why or how they have identified the matter as legally significant. Consider applying the 3 Cs + Q Framework when forming your responses. Discussion forums are an excellent tool for learning from each other and networking.
