Product Description

This Law In A Nutshell: Children & the Law follows the structure and format of the authors' casebook—Children and the Law: Doctrine, Policy and Practice. The authors have devoted entire chapters to the meaning of "parent," abuse and neglect, the foster care system, adoption, medical decision-making, support and other financial responsibilities, protective legislation, and delinquency.

Representation of children is also covered throughout the book, as are several relevant international law issues, including the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, international child labor, and U.S. tobacco exports to children overseas.

Table of Contents includes:
Status, Rights and Obligations of Children;
Defining the Child-Parent Relationship;
Child Abuse and Neglect;
Foster Care;
Criminal Abuse and Neglect;
Adoption;
Medical Decision-Making;
Financial Responsibility and Control;
Regulation of Children's Conduct;
Delinquency.

Don't let their small size fool you: West's Law in a Nutshell series represents the depth and breadth of the law in over a hundred different areas. Nutshells have a loyal following who swear by their succinct and easy to understand treatment of the law, and this particular title is a great illustration that learning the law doesn't have to be dry and confusing.
