Law and Legislation

The law is a language that lawyers and judges use when they try to prevent or resolve problems—human conflicts—using official rules made by the state as their starting point. These rules come in the form of written constitutions (federal and state), statutes and regulations (laws written by legislatures and administrative agencies), and judicial decisions that interpret these written constitutions, statutes, and regulations. They also come in the form of judicial decisions which fill in gaps in the written law. We call this latter form of gap-filling judicial decision “common law.”

A large portion of my day is spent on video calls helping parents to teach their kids the right material. Because of all that I’m constantly looking for great online resources to share with the parents of the kids I work with and I came across your NH Civics page while looking up social studies resources. It’s been a great help and had a lot of great sites I could send the kids and their parents to for some extra material to work with. Just thought I should reach out and thank you for putting it all together!
