I was wondering if any High School in the US offers any sort of introductory course to the US legal system. I’ve recently completed my paralegal certification, and it struck me that a lot of the material we covered could have been given in high school, and would have had a lot of utility had it been done so. (I’ve know far too many friends and aquaintences to be bruised by the legal system for lack of what seems to me to be basic knowledge.) We all, I’m sure, had to sit through some sort of intro to how the political system in the US works, but I can’t think of any coverage of the legal system.
Are there any high schools that offer this, and if not, why not?
