Acclaimed guide to 'street law' for young people now in Millennium edition

The Citizenship Foundation is proud to announce publication of the fifth and Millennium edition of the Young Citizen's Passport, its highly popular pocket guide to everyday law for school leavers and beyond.

Compiled by legal experts, the Passport comes in an accessible and lively format and offers concise, practical information and useful contacts on areas as diverse as sex and drugs, work and training, money, the family and the police. The guide is sponsored by Britannia Building Society and Service First Unite, and is published by Hodder Stoughton. Many teachers have already found the Passport useful as a teaching aid. With the introduction of Citizenship as a compulsory subject on the secondary curriculum from the year 2002, it should prove an essential resource. It will then be a requirement for students to be taught about the role and operation of our legal system in their lives and the legal and human rights and responsibilities underpinning society; the Passport offers many starting points for discussion, role-play, investigation and participation, in keeping with these requirements. What students say about the Passport: 'It does not shirk discussion of morally sensitive issues of sex, drugs and alcohol that we all have to face' 'The Passport sets you straight on laws and facts which are often confused' 'The language is clear and easy to understand' Graham Stow, Group Chief Executive of Britannia Building Society: 'Britannia is delighted to be associated with such a professional and extremely useful guide for teenagers.' Lord Phillips of Sudbury, Chairman of the Citizenship Foundation: 'The law grows ever more complex and many young people have been given little understanding of even the everyday aspects that affect their lives. The Young Citizen's Passport attemps to provide them with essential information in a form they can relate to.' Share
