Description


Real cases from the Supreme Court dealing with youth issues.

Laws, as they relate to youth and youth issues, can be difficult to understand for those they are intended to serve. In the first book of the Understanding Canadian Law series, author Daniel J. Baum breaks down the Supreme Court of Canada's decisions relating to youth in plain language intended for readers of all ages.

Drawing on examples from recent Supreme Court rulings, Youth and the Law walks the reader through such controversial subjects as spanking, bullying, youth violence, and police in the schools. Each chapter contains prompts to encourage critical thinking.

Youth and the Law is an objective introduction for all readers to better understand how law impacts the young.
