Too often today, schools don’t make lifestyle skills a priority or even offer these types of courses to the youth. I’ve been a big advocate of homeschooling for this primary reason. However, I realize homeschooling isn’t for every family.
We are all in different seasons of life and must make the best decision for our family as a whole. Because of the season of life I am in right now, my children currently attend public school and thankfully are all thriving academically.
Because my children aren’t likely to learn all they need to in the public school arena, I was surprised and thrilled to find interesting courses on the basic law that applies to everyday life. Young people need to be made aware of the law in order to make wise choices in life.
Illumenedge18 offers easy-to-understand law courses for adults and teens. The author, who designed the courses, is a graduate of the Concord Law School in Los Angeles. She became concerned for the youth when she realized she was never taught the basic laws of our country in high school. When she became an attorney, she realized that she had several clients who were simply paying for ignorant mistakes that were made in their earlier years.
She wanted to do something about this common ignorance in our youth.
And that’s why Illumenedge18 was created; to simply educate our youth to avoid making a detrimental mistake that could haunt them for the rest of their lives.
I had the opportunity to read each course and take the exam at the end of each unit. I found each course very educational and suitable for teens as well as adults. The courses are brief and get right to the point. I also found out that I had to actually read the material in order to pass the short unit exams. My degree is in criminal justice, and I still needed a refresher after all these years.
Here are the Illumedge18 Courses
- PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS & THE LAW
- DRIVING LAWS EVERY YOUNG DRIVER MUST KNOW

Some of the courses pertain specifically to Tennessee law, but for the most part they are applicable to all students residing in any U.S. state. The author plans on adding more states as time permits. She is also committed to keeping the courses up-to-date as the law often changes.
These courses are for anyone that is a teen or young adult. They are also great for anyone that lives or works closely with teens or young adults. These courses will help you keep them moving forward legally towards a brighter future. It’s an excellent resource for homeschoolers, too.
Most of the courses have a free lesson that you can access without having a membership. This is a good way to see if these courses will meet your student’s needs.
