Announcing the new Legal Survival Guide for New Adult #JUSTADULTING
View this email in your browser
Dear Florida High School Principal: 

To help your students become more knowledgeable about the laws affecting those 18 and older, The Law Related Education Committee of The Florida Bar has a new approach to educate Florida’s high school seniors about their legal rights and responsibilities. You may remember The Florida Bar’s printed Legal Guide for New Adults. Now, a new virtual guide replaces that.  

Through the dynamic Just Adulting mobile app, Florida’s high school seniors can be better prepared to “adult” in this exciting world of rights, responsibilities and obligations. The mobile app, which can be downloaded at, covers a variety of legal topics such as signing contracts, attaining credit, alcohol laws, employment, texting while driving, navigating the court system and many more. 
With spring break approaching and graduation only a few months away, we encourage you to post this promotional video to your school website and on all social media promoting events at your school. Please send another reminder as graduation draws near!  It is our goal for #JustAdulting to go viral and with your help it will happen, and more students will be equipped to understand the realities of being an adult.

Additional resources are also available at including an infographic flyer. We hope you will distribute the infographic to your seniors as soon as possible and print out the first page for placement as a poster around your school campus.

At, there is also a news release, PowerPoint presentation as well as a printable copy of the Legal Survival Guide for New Adults. If you wish to have a volunteer attorney discuss the principles included in the guide with your seniors, please contact your school’s Justice Teaching volunteer. If your school has not been assigned a Justice Teaching volunteer, or if you are not certain who your volunteer is, you may contact the Justice Teaching Program by phone at (850) 488-0007, via email at or online at

Your feedback is important to us. Please complete the survey at this link so that we may continue to produce an informative and valuable Legal Guide. Should you need additional information or have any questions, please contact public information coordinator Jeff Doran at Thank you for your cooperation and assistance in this worthwhile educational effort to assist Florida’s students in becoming productive, successful citizens.
