Course Description

In this class, we will study the crimes against property in this class, which includes larceny, embezzlement, receipt of stolen property, burglary, arson, and robbery.

What is the difference between larceny (and what is larceny?) and embezzlement? Can you be charged with Receipt of Stolen Property if you didn't know it was stolen? We will explore all of this and more in an interactive and exciting way. We will be studying the common law version of these crimes as they may be different in every state or country (which we will also explore).

I will provide videos for the course that will explain each topic along with practice story problems (called fact patterns in law) to help understand each concept. Students will be instructed to listen to a brief lesson, pause the video and try the practice problems themselves, then unpause the video to listen to the answers. Students should pay attention to the thinking behind the answers, not just the answers themselves.


What will you learn in this course:

- Students will learn the basic elements common law crimes against property

- Students will learn to look for the little details, think through a problem, and not settle on the first answer that jumps to mind
