To decide which laws, cases and offices I would include in my project, I sat down and constantly thought about what effected me as a student, a teenager, a child in a household of 10, a U.S citizen, and as a resident of Pennsylvania/ Philadelphia. I also searched general topics on court case decisions/ laws/ bureaucratic offices that affect teens. I searched cases by topic on websites like oyez.com and uscourts.gov. Deciding which laws, cases, and offices affected me was the most difficult part of the process. Because I had to choose laws and etc that currently affect me, I was trying to find very specific laws, and that proved useless. My mind constantly visited the laws and departments that have recently affected me, and how they’d be great things to write about, but because the instructions were to identify laws and etc that currently effect me, I felt stuck with “boring” or more simpler laws to choose from.
