Notes Revises the 6th edition (Detroit : Thomson Gale, 2008).
Summary This new edition of NSSL covers the changes that have happened in many areas of law since 2008, including abortion, the right to die, gun control, prayer in public schools, marijuana, marriage, personal income tax, drunk driving, capital punishment, right to work, lemon laws, leases and other agreements, child custody, and legal ages. Presented in chart format, NSSL allows users to make basic state-by-state comparisons of current state laws. The subjects featured fall into eight general legal categories: Business and Consumer Laws; Criminal Laws; Education Laws; Employment Laws; Family Laws; General Civil Laws; Real Estate Laws; and Tax Laws. Within each section each topic is arranged alphabetically and is presented in its own subsection, which begins with a general overview followed by a table that briefly summarizes each state's and the District of Columbia's statutes on particular aspects of law. References to each state's statute or code section covering that law are also presented, enabling users who are interested in reading the original text to find it easily. The appendix, Statutory Compilations Used in This Book, provides the abbreviations and full names of each state code.--Publisher.
