This on-demand webinar will examine the principles behind the founding of the United States and the way in which those principles are represented in the U.S. Constitution.

By the end of the webinar, registrants should be able to:

  • Understand and explain the structure of the court system;
  • Understand how U.S. federalism balances state and federal laws and powers;
  • Understand and utilize concepts of jurisdiction (geographically and otherwise);

  • See how legal history and structure can be used to aid in researching, learning, and navigating the law and for purposes of professional certification.
