Excerpt

“Should youth care about the law?” This is a question some of you might have as you open this book. Is the law something that is only interesting to adults and plays no part in your life? The answer is that it’s the law that lays down what rights and responsibilities you have but it also gives people different rights and responsibilities at different ages. If you don’t know what your legal responsibilities are, you can get into trouble when you don’t carry them out. If you don’t know what your legal rights are, you won’t be able to get people to respect them. So, yes, you should certainly care about the law. It’s useful and often important to know how it works and to have some idea of what rules it lays down and what rights and responsibilities it gives you.
