Law affects all of us, all the time.
So, wouldn't it be great if we could all have access to basic information about it, all the time?
Well, we can. The Young Citizen's Passport (YCP) gives people a basic knowledge of how the law affects and protects us, and how it is made.
The YCP is great. We should all be aware of our rights and responsibilities for a better and fairer society. Ben Elton, writer and comedian
