Concepts include the study of the U.S. Constitution and its Amendments as well as other laws that helped shape the nation, the roles of each of the three branches of government, how a bill is passed, important Supreme Court cases and decisions in U.S. history, how different levels of court and juries work, etc. Civics may be taken as a middle school class, while more advanced courses having to do with government may be offered in high school and college. The understanding of civics is crucial for those seeking careers in the legal profession.
