Overview

In this practical guide to the law for the young people of Canada, Ned Lecic and Marvin Zuker provide an all‑encompassing, accurate manual meant to empower and educate youth and those that serve them.

The Law is (Not) for Kids is the first book to deal with Canadian law and the rights of children and teens that is meant for young readers, however it will also be a valuable resource for teachers, counsellors, lawyers, and all those who support youth when they encounter the law.
