Om boka

This textbook offers a foundation for understanding adolescents' rights by articulating the complexity, breadth, and challenging nature of laws regulating adolescents. It showcases the Supreme Court's key interpretations of the Constitution as it relates to adolescents' rights. Chapters examine relevant legal systems and the social contexts that legal systems control. In addition, chapters discuss constitutional issues and their nuances through actual cases that often offer alternative interpretations of constitutional rules. The textbook guides readers through both well accepted and often ignored conceptions of adolescents' rights. It offers readers unfamiliar with the law the tools they need to understand the importance of adolescents' constitutional rights and how they can contribute to developing them.
