In Crime and Justice, homeschoolers will be given an introduction to the way our country deals with crime.  We will open our exploration of crime and justice with a discussion of different types of crime, from white collar crime to homicide.  We will then move into how crime is dealt with in a courtroom environment while learning about the role of judges, lawyers, juries, prosecution, and defendant.  Homeschoolers will obtain knowledge about common defenses that can be used to prevent the punishment of the innocent.  Crime and justice will serve as a fascinating introduction for those who wish to pursue a career in law or the police.
