Juvenile Rights. Second Edition.
Eaneman, Paulette S.; And Others
These classroom materials are part of the Project Benchmark series designed to teach secondary students about our legal concepts and systems. This unit focuses on juvenile rights and responsibilities under the law. The materials outline juvenile rights and responsibilities in the areas of parental control, education, free expression, search and seizure, marriage, work, legal contracts, torts and liability, automobile law, criminal law, and drug and alcohol law. The second section briefly outlines the jurisdiction and procedures of juvenile court. Suggestions are included for a sample lesson requiring students to play roles of a juvenile bill-of-rights convention in which eight freedoms are determined. (DE)
