Oklahoma Univ., Norman. Southwest Center for Human Relations Studies.; Oklahoma Bar Association, Oklahoma City.
This background material on laws and the legal system is designed for teachers of citizenship courses at the secondary level. Fifteen topics in the form of questions and answers are discussed by practicing lawyers. Topics include consumer law, criminal law, drugs and alcohol, employment law, juvenile and family courts, landlord and tenant law, and property law. Legal aid, the public defender system, court appointed lawyers, the right to inspection of school records and preservation of their privacy, small claims courts, and wills are also examined. In addition, specific discussion of the courts, environmental law, and insurance law in Oklahoma are included. The appendix provides brief reviews of Oklahoma court decisions pertaining to the juvenile code and of juvenile delinquency and the "unholy alliance." This alliance refers to a mandate by the state legislature that requires the Department of Institutions, Social and Rehabilitative Services to enter into a contract with the Oklahoma Supreme Court to provide intake, probation, and parole services for every county except those with juvenile bureaus.
