Many people get glazed eyes when they think about law or politics, but these are vitally important subjects for everyone. No one can isolate themselves from matters of state and enterprise. Systems of law and politics create support systems for everyone. Business and life have deep and broad legal dimensions.

These programs look beyond what the law is or says and beyond the “you can (or must) do this” and “you can’t do that” approach. They help people think legally – to analyze facts and legal issues and take effective actions, alone or jointly with others and with or without legal advice.

Greater legal knowledge can lead to greater self-reliance and more productive, affordable and efficient lawyer-client relationships. It can help avoid or manage legal problems that can retard progress and cause family, social and business chaos. It can contribute to a greater understanding of domestic and international legal, political and economic affairs.
