This textbook for high school students on law in Utah supplements "Street Law: A Course in Practical Law," a program in law-related education in use across the United States. The introduction explains the meaning of law, how laws are made in Utah, and the functions of the state court system. Following chapters elucidate the branches of law, including criminal, juvenile, consumer, family, and housing law. The book also covers torts, rights, and responsibilities. Each chapter focuses on the special features of Utah law, the legal process, and the state agencies that create and enforce the law. In the section on criminal law, the descriptions of crimes provide specific definitions, aggravating circumstances, and punishments. The chapter that covers housing law presents samples of real estate contracts that illustrate the technicalities of the law. At the end of the book is a glossary of the legal terms used in the text.
