Hint: Lawyers often put this kind of information on their websites to drive search traffic for advertising. When you land on a site with legal information be sure to investigate who made the site. There are many excellent legal resources available for free as this guide shows: you don't need to use a lawyer's advertising site. 

About Legal Rights for Teens

This guide gives you resources to learn about the legal rights of teens in Massachusetts, general information about American law and lawyers, and basic information about the US government. The resources are books, videos, websites and databases. We have some of the resources here at school and others you can access through the Boston Public Library website. 

If you have good resources to add please let Mrs. Hanson know and she will add them to the guide.
