Course Features Selected lecture notes Course Highlights This course includes a general Guide to Reading Social Sciences, which is located in the study materials section. Course Description Law is a common and yet distinct aspect of everyday life in modern societies. This course examines the central features of law as a social institution and as a feature of popular culture. We will explore the nature of law as a set of social systems, central actors in the systems, legal reasoning, and the relationship of the legal form and reasoning to social change. The course emphasizes the relationship between the internal logic of legal devices and economic, political and social processes. Emphasis is placed upon developing a perspective which views law as a practical resource, a mechanism for handling the widest range of unspecified social issues, problems, and conflicts, and at the same time, as a set of shared representations and aspirations. We will explore the range of experiences of law for its ministers (lawyers, judges, law enforcement agents and administrators) as well as for its supplicants (citizens, plaintiffs, defendants). We will examine how law is mobilized and deployed by professionals and ordinary citizens. We cannot cover all aspects of the legal system, nor focus on all the different actors. A set of topics has been selected to develop understanding of the situational and systemic demands within which actors in the legal system operate and perform their roles; at the same time, we will try to discover systematic patterns in the uses and consequences of law. Throughout the course there is concern for understanding what we mean by legality and the rule of law. MIT OpenCourseWare makes the materials used in the teaching of almost all of MIT's subjects available on the Web, free of charge. With more than 2,200 courses available, OCW is delivering on the promise of open sharing of knowledge.

How Even Skinny, "Barney Fife" Cops Single-Handedly Control And Dominate Violent Criminals, Gang-Bangers And Other Cold-Blooded Killers ... Without Even Drawing Their Guns! If you want to know how even a "puny" man can control and dominate violent criminals (even a mob of violent criminals) barehanded... then here's how some of the world's most elite law enforcement agents do it. And why you can do the same thing with the information in this letter. Here's what it's all about: Several years ago one of my military contacts told me about this small (even puny), "Barney Fife" cop who got stuck in a small mob of angry rioters -- some of them violent, and armed to the teeth with clubs, knives and even guns. His partner had been knocked unconscious by a brick that flew through the passenger side window of his squad car. And there was nobody else around to help. So what did "Barney" do? Wait for backup? Drive away as fast as possible? Nope. After calling his position in to dispatch, this crazy cop walked into the thick of these violent criminals... Without So Much As Drawing His Firearm Or Tazer! What happened? Within minutes, he had the entire crowd on their knees, hands on their heads, obeying his every command. In fact, the way I heard it, he even had them raising their hands for permission when they wanted to ask him questions -- terrified to disobey his orders. Question is, how did he do it? How did this droopy little man control this mob of lunatics ready to rip the head off of the first cop they saw? The answer is actually pretty simple: Many cops are, ounce for ounce, the most dangerous fighters in the world. I'm dead serious about this, too. A lot of inner city cops I train see more combat in a month than most "hot-duty" soldiers see in a career. And because of that, they are forced to learn, use and sometimes even invent (on the spot) ways to... Inflict More Pain And Damage In A Single Second... Than The Average Criminal Feels In His Entire Life! This is no joke, either. It's why you sometimes see even small, "wet noodle" cops command total cooperation from gang-bangers, rapists and even psychopathic killers with blood-stained weapons in their hands. And guess what? If you would like to know how to put the fear of death and pain into anyone who dares mess with you and your family... and do it without long hours of training and sweating, or having to attend any self defense schools... then I've got great news for you. Check this out: For the past 15 years I've trained some of the toughest, "bad ass" law men in the world -- like military police , inner city cops , secret service agents and other elite law enforcement agents whose lives are on the line every single day. And recently, I held a private training with two cops showing them all the "ultra violent" methods I teach law men (as well as some brutal "street smart" stuff some of them have taught me) and recorded it to video. I call this series: "Law Dog" . And it is specifically designed to let you break, hobble and dispense brutal (even inhumane) damage on men of any size, speed or disposition -- Even If You're A 110 Pound "Bookworm" Who's Never So Much As Thrown A Punch Before! I'm not screwing around here, either. These videos contain the EXACT same techniques multi-million dollar security firms, mercenary groups and other "military level" law enforcement professionals pay me a FORTUNE (as much as $30k per DAY) to teach them. Yet, if I hear from you right now, you can have these videos for just a small fraction of what they pay. I'll tell you more about that in a second. First, here's just a handful of the advanced fighting secrets on this series: •Little-known, "dirty tricks" that let you practically destroy the skeletal structure in a man's wrists, arms or legs. A simple wrist lock so nightmarishly painful, he'll think you're sawing his hand off. How to slam anyone who "bum rushes" you on the pavement with so much speed and force his spine could very well shatter on impact. How to break another man's arm on the spot in the heat of battle. (Great for when you're not feeling energetic and just want to end a fight -- fast.) What to do if someone has you pinned to the ground, viciously trying to kill you. (This move is so blatantly nasty, I INSIST my police students make sure there are no video cameras around when doing it . That way, the Internal Affairs bureaucrats can't accuse them of "excessive force" and take away their jobs.) A "magic bullet" fighting move that engulfs an attacker's nerve endings with white-hot pain -- yet won't leave a scratch, bruise or mark on his body. (This is how smart cops hide their "handy-work" from limp-wristed socialist judges and lawyers.) How to stretch and "pop" the neck tendons of anyone who tries choking you from behind. (He'll be in such excruciating pain he won't even remember his own name, much less want to attack you.) A simple "pain-inducement" secret used by cops to instantly stop perps jacked up on drugs or steroids. (This is one way small cops who weigh 100 pounds soaking wet control violent criminals. And it's a LOT easier than you think.) How to disrupt the neural pathways to another man's arms and legs -- and literally "short circuit" his ability to move. (You will even hear the two officers I demonstrate this on in Law Dog moaning and gasping in pain. This is some seriously violent fighting "technology" not 1 in 1000 self defense experts knows about.) The scoop-and-toss secret that lets even skinny guys throw "Jabba the Hut" sized goons into walls or through windows. "Fool-proof" weapon disarmament tricks used by big city SWAT cops and anti-gang units. And speaking of weapons... I spend much time in Law Dog on firearm disarmament (as well as how to make sure nobody disarms you if you're packing heat). Including... The dumb mistake almost all men (even cops) make with their guns... Safest and easiest way to disarm a gangsta punk who threatens to "pop a cap in your ass"... What many firearms "experts" teach that is just plain wrong (and dangerous to you)... When you must NEVER try to shoot a knife attacker... and even... How To Snatch A Gun From Someone So Fast It Could Damn Near Rip The Trigger Finger Clean Off His Hand! You'll NEVER see this "technique" on TV or in the movies. And yet, it's probably the easiest (and most reliable) way to disarm a weapon ever discovered. There's no theory or "fluff" in these videos. Instead, you will find the most advanced "street combat" moves ever invented. The exact same moves used every day by the world's most elite cops to tear through armed gang-bangers, rioters and other dangers criminals... Without Even Breaking A Sweat! However, you cannot dawdle on this. Not 1% of the most elite cops on the planet possesses this information. And I usually ONLY allow law enforcement pros to buy it. But I'm making a special exception for you, since you have enrolled in my other Close Combat Training courses. Let’s start training now by clicking the “TAKE THIS COURSE" button up above.

While money laundering has been a matter of concern for law enforcement and tax authorities for generations, the priority of stopping those who seek to conceal and launder funds took on a new imperative with the events of 9/11. With this eye opening day's events, it became apparent that "following the money" was one way of detecting and, hopefully, forestalling such events. With each passing year, with each transgression detected, new schemes are uncovered and new procedures initiated to detect current paths of concealment. As a result, the area of anti-money laundering is a very fluid regulatory concern covering a broad array of domestic industries. AML does not just affect the broker/dealer and securities industry, but also the banking, credit, life insurance, and even money sending industries. Each industry has its own unique set of problems that must be addressed. Each industry must devote substantial time and money to address the ever-changing regulatory requirements.

For the first time ever, we are now offering this exciting online training to the private sector. Industry leaders are already saying that this is a “ necessity ” for those working retail criminal investigations which want to be successful in the war against organized retail crime. Every year billions of dollars in merchandise losses go undetected due to the lack of creditable information to aide in the investigation and prosecution of known offenders. Confidential and reliable Informants have long played a key role in helping law enforcement to resolve both complex and significant criminal activities within their jurisdiction and have now become a necessity within the loss prevention community. The 21 st century has brought with it a new breed of criminal and the necessity for creditable information from trustworthy sources. The ability to identify creditable informants, gather information on criminal activities and build trust with informants, all play a crucial role in identifying, investigating and prosecuting criminal activities against your organization. Developed from the leaders in the industry, we explore the insights and best practices from professionals that have served with the FBI, Homeland Security, Local and State Law Enforcement to include VICE and Narcotics, loss prevention and cyber-crime.

Welcome to this course on Statistics for Accounting and Finance Professionals. Statistics are an important tool for running a business effectively. Managers, especially CFOs are required to take decisions based on data collected over time. This data is useless unless it is analyzed and interpreted; Statistics enables the business managers to analyze the data and arrive at meaningful conclusions. Statistical analysis allows businesses to deal with the uncertainties of the business. It allows managers to make sound judgments, knowing their decisions are based on data and not on assumptions. Statistics is not only applied in the field of Management, Commerce, Economics, Social Sciences, Mathematics and so on, but also in our life like Public Services, Defence, Banking, Insurance, Tourism, Hospitality, Police, etc. Statistics plays a very vital role in enriching a specific domain by collecting data in that field, analysing the data by applying various statistical techniques and finally making statistical inferences about the domain. Gone are the days, when the managers used to make decisions on the basis of hunch, intuition, trial and error. Now a days business environment is highly complex and most of the decision making process rely on quantitative techniques which are nothing but combination of statistical methods. Accountants and Finance Managers will be making use of data on previous sales, raw materials, wages and salaries, products of identical nature of other factories, etc for analysing them to maximise the profits. So they would be using some statistical methods to maximise their profits. By taking this course, you will understand: a) What is Statistics? b) Relationship of Statistics with Economics, Business Management and Commerce & Industry. c) How to collect data? (covering Interview Method, Mailed Questionnarie Method, Observation Method and Questionnaries filled in by Enumerators) d) How to present data? (covering Textual Presentation, Tabular Presentation and Diagramatic representation) e) Frequency Distribution. Based on students engagement level, second level course will be created which will cover topics like Correlation, Regression, Index Numbers, etc. This course is presented in self paced learning style.
