Description

"Can I be prosecuted for comments I make online?" "Can I get a credit card?" "When can I get a tattoo?" "Why can't I wear what I want to school?" These questions--and many more--are asked and answered in What Are My Rights? Teens often have questions about the law, but they don't always know where to turn for the answers. This book gives them those answers, exploring more than 100 legal questions pertaining specifically to teens. The third edition includes fresh facts, updated statistics, and additional questions and answers, including a new chapter addressing online issues from Facebook to file sharing. Using a straightforward "just the facts" tone, and drawing on examples from real-life court cases involving young people, Judge Tom Jacobs explains to teens what their rights are. Readers learn about the laws that affect them, appreciate their rights, and consider their responsibilities.
