If you love wizards, witches, and Hogwarts, and if you are curious about the law, this book is for you. It explores the intersection of Harry Potter's adventures and the law of our society. It uses the twists and turns in the experiences of our favorite, and some t-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. Curious minds want to kw more. This book contains 11 modules, 10 of which cover a major category of law and consist of numerous chapters that have a common theme. 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 explanation of how the law of our world would be applied to the wizarding situation.
