Law Related Education
Beyond High School

The NH Bar Association's Law Related Education Program is pleased to make available this guide explaining common laws that adults need to be aware of as they make decisions in adulthood. This publication was last updated in 2002 by second year Franklin Pierce Law Center student, Kelly Dunham. The Bar wishes to thank Ms. Dunham for her time and efforts. Please note: this guide is based on New Hampshire law in effect at the time of publication. It is issued as a public service to provide general information only and is not a substitute for specific legal advice.
