Practical Law in New Mexico.
Smith, Melinda, Ed.
This book was written for teachers and students as a New Mexico supplement to "Street Law: A Course in Practical Law" (West Publishing Company, 1980), a text used in many high school law classes. The book may also be used as a teacher and student resource for civics, government, and other courses in the high school curriculum, or lay people might find the book useful as a practical handbook on New Mexico law. The material is current as of January, 1982. The first seven chapters, each of which corresponds to a chapter in the "Street Law" text, deal with the following topics: introduction to law, criminal law, juvenile law, consumer law, family law, housing law, and individual rights law. An eighth chapter dealing with employment law in New Mexico is also included. (Author/RM)
