LAW 101: The Hawai’i Legal System

LAW 101 examines the legal system at the federal, state, and county level. It reviews and analyzes the interactions between the three structures of government and their processes of checks and balances. Students learn about the complex models of constitutions, charters, statutes, ordinances, and court cases, and the interrelated rights and responsibilities between citizens and the three branches at all levels of government. Students are presented with a variety of real-world issues and apply legal theories and terminology in examining and evaluating them. Students also learn about the roles attorneys play in society and about legal behaviors and ethical practices and their interplay between the law, lawyers, paralegals, clients, and the Judiciary. Students critique ethical scenarios and use inquiry and research methods to study and investigate legal ethics and apply their concepts.
