Accessible, straightforward answers to more than 100 questions about teens’ legal rights and responsibilities.

“Can I be prosecuted for comments I make online?” “What are my rights as an undocumented teen?” “When can I get a tattoo?” These questions—and many more—are asked and answered in What Are My Rights? Teens often have questions about the justice system but don’t always know where to turn for answers. This book provides those answers, exploring more than 100 legal questions pertaining specifically to teens. This revised and updated fourth edition includes fresh facts, updated statistics, and brand-new questions and answers. Using a straightforward tone and drawing on examples from real-life juvenile court cases, Judge Tom Jacobs helps readers learn about the laws that affect them, appreciate their legal rights, and consider their responsibilities.
