Combining practical legal tips with an exhaustive review of the law in the United States, this comprehensive reference answers more than 1,200 questions ranging from Where did the word tort come from? and How are state court judges selected? to Where did the first U.S. Supreme Court meet? Useful advice includes how to find a lawyer, how to file a complaint against a lawyer, how to document discrimination in the workplace, and how to handle oneself in court. Interspersed throughout are fun sidebars highlighting important cases and explanations of legal terms as well as entertaining information on bizarre and frivolous lawsuits, including one where a prisoner in Colorado sued prison officials after he injured himself during an escape attempt. With a wide range of information suitable for various knowledge bases—from junior high to junior college—this is an ideal source for anyone looking to get a better understanding of the law.
Every once in awhile I try to read a nonfiction book that is geared to a certain subject. Visible Ink Press is my go to source usually for these kind of books. When I was offered this book for review, I jumped on the chance. I have a teenager at home who is struggling with history and government research and this book helped alot.
Anything you wanted to know about law is more than likely in this book. My daughter and I both liked the section on the Constitution and the Ammendments. It broke everything down for us and explained everything to where it was easy to understand. The book has tons of frequently asked questions on many subjects with helpful answers that are clear and to the point. Some of the things addressed in the book are:
- Bankruptcy Laws
- Credit Score and Laws to protect it
- Criminal Justice
- The Judiciary Process
- The Constitution
- Our Founding Fathers
- Family Law and more!
Overall this is a great reference book to have in your home. Perfect for teens as they go through the harder History courses in school as well. My daughter and I both were very pleased with this one!
