"Examples of the modules include Criminal Law, Family Law, and School Law. The chapters within a module address a specific area of law such as Identity Theft, Child Neglect, and Bullying. Each chapter includes the following components: a short vignette from the Harry Potter stories, an explanation of the relevant Muggle law, and a[n] explanation of how the law of our world would be applied to the wizarding situation"--Publisher's description.
Written for those who love wizards, witches, and Hogwarts, and are curious about the law. Explore the intersection of Harry Potter's adventures and the law of our society. See the twists and turns in the experiences of our favorite, and some not-so-favorite, characters as case examples to illustrate legal principles. For a society to function orderly and for people to live together without chaos, there must be laws and rules for people to follow. Thus, law is a critical component for any civilized society, including ours and Harry's. Law is what differentiates anarchy from order and civility. Law imposes penalties – such as jail or fines – for illegal acts. Law also provides a mechanism to settle disputes among people and protect our rights as individuals. - Publsiher's description.
