To ensure that you can measure your success throughout this course, and that you are understanding the legal concepts being expressed, you are to keep a weekly journal that explains the key points in each lesson. Your journal can only be read by yourself and the instructor.
The main part of the exercise is to succinctly explain the key learning points of each lesson (text and online) while adding in your own insight and experiences. In addition, in some of the modules, an additional journal topic is assigned in the Learning Activities. You may also elaborate on points raised in the discussion forums, questions raised in the textbook, and your experience with some of the assigned activities (e.g., completing an e-learning module on a government website).
