ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – The Florida Bar is releasing a mobile app aimed at helping young adults navigate they legal system.
The justadulting.com app and website was released last week by the Florida’s lawyers’ organization.
Florida Bar president Ramon Abadin says the goal of the app and website is to help young adults confront the legal realities of becoming an adult.
That includes being charged as an adult for a crime, being able to sign contracts and laws regulating worker safety for young adults who have just joined the workforce.
Abadin says young adults need to realize that crimes that might merit a slap on the wrist for juveniles can have serious consequences for adults.
