What is involved in estate planning? What can I do legally if I have noisy neighbors? What are the consequences of an expired visa? The Gale Encyclopedia Of Everyday Law fills a much-needed gap between legal texts focusing on the theory and history behind the law and more practical guides dealing with the law and its everyday effect upon its citizens. Containing approximately 200 articles, the Gale Encyclopedia Of Everyday Law includes: brief descriptions of each issue's historical background, covering important statutes and cases; profiles of various U.S. laws and regulations; details of how laws and regulations vary from state to state, and; comprehensive bibliographies, including print and Web resources and lists of relevant organizations.
At first glance, this might seem to be a reference that would have less use in a high school library. However, many students may have legal questions that they need answered not only for themselves, but also for those who have parents who are less likely to use a library of any kind. Should you decide this is not within your budget, you should try to share the purchase with the local public library and make sure your students and teachers know its there.
