This on-demand webinar will explore the ways in which legal concepts are categorized. These categories both help to understand the law and inform how the law is made, written, and researched. By focusing on several major distinctions or classifications, attendees will gain working knowledge of how major legal concepts fit into a larger legal landscape. 

By the end of the course, attendees should be able to:

  • Understand major distinctions in the law, including
    • Public vs. private law
    • Civil vs. criminal law
    • Substantive vs. procedural law
    • Law vs. equity
  • Understand reasoning behind classification as a practice;
  • Understand reasoning behind particular classifications/distinctions; and
  • Develop strategies for approaching research and other legal work based on the structure of legal classifications.
