Download the NYC Youth Law Manual, developed by the New York County Lawyers Association, for a detailed overview of the court system and legal issues in New York State. (It’s a big file, so it may take a while to download.) The manual contains information on a wide range of topics, including chapters on:

  • Overview of the court system
  • Law as a career
  • The attorney-client relationship
  • Children’s rights and duties at home, in school and at work
  • Rights and concerns of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) New Yorkers
  • Hate crimes law
  • Rights of people with disabilities
  • Immigration law
  • Child abuse and neglect
  • Detentions, searches and criminal arrests

CourtHelp was created to assist people in New York courts who do not have attorneys. It provides comprehensive information on the courts in an easy-to-understand format, including a glossary of common legal terms.
