TOP REVIEWS FROM AN INTRODUCTION TO AMERICAN LAW
Excellent! The professors were very knowledgeable and presented the information clearly. I'd recommend this for anyone interested in law school or working in any capacity within the legal field.
Basic introduction to American Law, equivalent to the first week or so of what would be taught in law school for each subject. Not comprehensive by any means, but it covers the basics very well.
I enjoyed learning about our laws and it's applications, as well as history. The course was informative and enjoyable. The presenters were knowledgeable and easy to understand. Well worth the time.
It requires self-study, patience, and determination to finish the course. It gives you a brief background about American law and the system. Overall, the course is educational and convenient.
