Know Your Rights for Teens is an opportunity for teens to become politically engaged with substantive social issues that impact the lives of diverse populations and communities. Schmidt, who specializes in family and juvenile law, will shed light on answers to difficult questions affecting teens of all ages, genders, identities and backgrounds.
Teens should know how their free speech rights apply to their social media posts, or what their rights are when they interact with police officers. What if a teen is also an immigrant? Can a teen refuse to be searched while at a public school? Teens have rights; teens need to know their rights.
