OF INTEREST TO
WOMEN AND CHILDREN
CALIFORNIA STATE PRINTING OFFICE
This publication is a revision of a compilation of California laws relating to women and children which was issued by the California State Library in 1912 and brought up to date by supplements in 1914 and 1916. The original edition was prepared because of the interest in this body of the law following the advent of woman suffrage. The compilation, in addition to fulfilling this need, has come into general use as a manual for judicial and administrative officials and a text for various civil service examinations.
The large number of laws relating to education and health which could have been included consistently herein have been omitted because of special compilations on these subjects. Except for the fundamental compulsory education law, the field covered by "School Law of California," issued by the Superintendent of Public Instruction, has been practically untouched. Similarly, little duplication is made of the subject matter in "General Health Laws,” issued by the State Board of Health.
The extracts in this book are arranged numerically under the codes. The Civil Code contains the law covering the rights and duties of the individual, and the Code of Civil Procedure, the law which shows how those rights may be enforced. The nature of the Penal Code is indicated sufficiently from its title. The Political Code contains that body of the law which defines the rights, powers and duties of the state, its subdivisions and its officers.
No comments, notes or citations to cases have been given, as all these things may be found in the complete codes of California, copies of which are, or ought to be, accessible every public library in the state.
The State Library stands ready at all times to answer inquiries regarding the laws of the state and will aid in furnishing information regarding Federal laws and the laws of other states relating to women and children. CALIFORNIA STATE LIBRARY,
