“Can I be prosecuted for comments I make online?” “Can I get a credit card?” “Why can’t I wear what I want to school?” These questions about teens and the law—and many more—are asked and answered. Teens often have questions about the law, but they don’t always know where to turn for answers about youth rights. This book provides those answers, exploring more than 100 questions specifically discussing the legal rights of teens. This revised and expanded third edition of the book features:
Judge Tom Jacobs draws on examples from real-life court cases involving young people, and uses a straightforward “just the facts” tone to help teens find out more about the laws that affect them, appreciate their rights, and consider their responsibilities.
