Navigating the Legal System
Certificate Course

Learning how the court system works is vital to business owners, realtors and property management companies, loss prevention and private security, law enforcement and public safety personnel.

Courts do not work in ways that TV shows and movies portray them.

While certain rights are guaranteed under our constitution, the reality of how the wheels of justice turn
can sometimes seem unfair, biased and confusing to those with no insight into the justice system.

We live in a litigious society and in a world where the law of the land is carved through everything that we do.

The difference between being a victim of the law and surviving its occasional pitfalls is knowledge.


Educating yourself in how our justice system works will prove valuable in business and in everyday life.
