Children and the Law in a Nutshell

Children and the Law in a Nutshell

Author: Douglas Abrams, Sarah H. Ramsey, Susan V. Mangold Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/06/2015

This Nutshell 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 covered throughout the book. Also treated for comparative purposes 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.
