State Bar’s Kids and the Law Guide

I started reviewing the annual guide regarding Kids and the Law when I taught a high school class as part of a law school course I took at Santa Clara University School of Law.  The guide was very helpful in identifying topics for discussion with my students.  Now that I have kids of my own, the guide reminds me how important it is for my children to understand their rights and responsibilities.  I have not represented a significant number of minors in the workforce, and most of my employer clients do not employ minors beyond the occasional son or daughter. Reviewing the section on work permits is always a good refresher.  Since I am scoutmaster for my sons’ boy scout troop, I may use different portions of the guide to help educate the scouts.

You can download the Kids and the Law Guide in English or Spanish.  You can also order multiple copies of the guide.

Anyone with children, or who works with children or has responsibility for children should take a look and consider reviewing the information with their family and friends.
