Maine State Bar Association Prepares Students To Be "On Your Own"

The Maine State Bar Association (MSBA) has prepared a booklet to help “prepare young people for some of the legal complexities of adulthood." The free booklet, On Your Own, is the MSBA's guide to law for young adults and is available for high school seniors statewide.

On Your Own is available in booklet form and can be downloaded on the MSBA website or ordered through high schools. The 84-page guide covers the rights and responsibilities of adulthood: 

Included in the booklet is information on:

  • College
  • Credit Ratings and Credit Reports
  • Military Service
  • Warranties
  • Finding A Job
  • Consumer Problems
  • Voting
  • What To Do If Arrested
  • Finding An Apartment 
  • How The Maine Court System Works
  • Dealing With Landlords
  • How To Deal With Money

Each year, the booklet is updated with the latest Maine laws, rules and regulations. A volunteer committee of Maine lawyers oversees and contributes their expertise to the booklet, ensuring that the information is up-to-date and accurate. The cost to print and distribute the free booklet is offset by the MSBA, as well as the generosity of law firms and businesses throughout the state with one common goal: to prepare teenagers for adulthood.

At the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein, we, too, are advocates for preparing today’s teenagers for the complexities of tomorrow. As personal injury lawyers, we see firsthand the affects of drunk driving accidents. Our Arrive Alive Creative Contest asks high school students to come up with a creative message to send to their peers promoting safe and sober decision making. Open to graduating seniors throughout the state and now in its sixth year, the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein has given away over $20,000 in prizes to graduating seniors, including laptop computers to first place winners who help send the message to “Arrive Alive” and not drink and drive.
