Ignorance of the Law is No Excuse and nothing can set back a student worse than an arrest. Parents as well as students don't know about the law and this course is a primer on legal concepts that can help you instill in your children: It's more than Mom and Dad saying don't do it....but the law says so as well. Open to parents and students 12 and over. Note, I do discuss matters connected to sexual offenses and sexting because that is showing up even with our younger folks and Georgia law can be tough on that.
Ages: 12 + Up Materials Needed: No extra materials needed
