Legal Studies

Instructor: Teresa Miller

This exciting new program is for any student interested in pursuing a career in the legal field. The curriculum is focused on career investigation and development, legal office procedures, legal office ethics, legal concepts, office management procedures, business economics, communication and presentation skills (both written and oral), technology use and entrepreneurship.

The students will be exposed to our local law jurisdiction by visiting the Stark County Courthouse, Canton City Hall and the Stark County jail. We also have scheduled several lawyers and judges to discuss different career possibilities. Some potential careers include, but are not limited to: court administrator, paralegal, court reporter, legal assistant, legal case administrator and lawyer. All Legal Studies students will have the opportunity to participate and compete in the Ohio Mock Trial during the two year program.
