Citing course text and at least one other course reading, plus at least two additional academic sources, answer 1 of the following questions:
- To what extent does literature offer insights into how one apprehends and understands the criminal law?
- When it comes to addressing the fallout from the breakdown of a spousal relationship, when and why does it make sense to go to family court?
