What is #justadulting?
To help students become more knowledgeable about the laws which may impact their lives when they turn 18 and older, The Florida Bar Law Related Education Committee and the Florida Law Related Education Association, Inc. have a new approach to educating Florida’s high school seniors and other young adults about the new world of “adulting.” The Florida Bar LRE Committee and FLREA. worked collaboratively to conceptualize this innovative initiative and its corresponding resources including a web-based mobile app as well as a classroom activity and quiz show.
Through The Florida Bar’s dynamic Just Adulting mobile web app, Florida’s high school seniors and college students can be better prepared to “adult” in this exciting world of legal rights, responsibilities, and obligations. The app, which can be found at www.justadulting.com, covers a wide variety of legal topics such as signing contracts, landlord tenant laws, credit, the Florida court system, alcohol laws, serving as a juror, paying taxes, employment laws, texting while driving and much more. The app is free, and while it functions as an app, by saving the site to your home screen on your phone or bookmarking the website, you never have to purchase it from an app store. It is designed as a mobile web-based app that is simple, easy to use, and can be updated frequently.
