The Student Lawyer. High School Handbook of Minnesota Law.
Feeney, Michael J.; Wangen, Roger K.
Student and teacher materials are included in this book on Minnesota laws which directly affect the lives of high school students. The laws are grouped into six broad categories insofar as they are related to major areas of a student's life, i.e., civil law, home, school, marriage, the criminal justice system, and alcohol and drug laws. After introducing the topic to the student, each section presents a pretest, educational objectives for the topic, "mini" case problems, and at least one fairly complicated case story involving several legal questions. Information is also included to clarify the legal questions involved. Teacher's notes, following each topic unit, include responses to self-quizzes and an outline of case studies issues requiring discussion. A teacher's foreward describes the strategies and resources for using the handbook. Information on the availability of a slide show and suggestions for outside research assignments are given. Appendixes on the judicial systems, due process, and equal protection conclude the handbook. Although geared particularly to the law of Minnesota, this guide could be used in other states. (JH)
