This course equips learners with basic legal knowledge relevant to human service professionals. Learners gain an understanding of the general legal principles of the judicial system and how to apply laws in some relevant substantive legal areas. Learners will learn how to assert their legal rights or their families’ or clients’ legal rights, and how to utilize appropriate resources as support.
On a practice level, the course provides a brief review of Alberta legislation related to child protection (Child, Youth and Family Enhancement Act), prevention of family violence (Protection Against Family Violence Act), Family Law Act, so that service recipients, such as families in dissolution, children needing protection, and those suffering from discrimination or marginalization are better served.
