Containing 276 articles, the Gale Encyclopedia of Everyday Law includes: brief descriptions of each issue's historical background, covering important statutes and cases, profiles of various U.S. laws and regulations, details of how laws and regulations vary from state to state, and comprehensive bibliographies, including print and Web resources and lists of relevant organizations.
