U.S. Law

Overview of U.S. Law Project

An Online Course Providing an Overview of U.S. Law

Stetson University College of Law has launched an exciting program and book specifically designed to help pre-law students, international students, and international officials better understand the U.S. legal system.

The Overview of U.S. Law Project is an asynchronous online course with a companion book, Overview of U.S. Law. Each segment of the course and chapter of the book supports the framework for effectively learning the nuts and bolts of U.S. Law. It can assist those who need a head start with law school, those who learned English as a second language, and those who seek knowledge of how the U.S. legal system is structured and functions.

An outstanding faculty of law professors from distinguished American law schools penned each of the 17 chapters ranging from an overview of the legal system in the United States to Contracts, Torts, Criminal Law, Civil Procedure, Evidence, Family Law, and more. These same authors provide video lectures corresponding to their book chapters.
