The Rights Of Wand Usage

Chapter 10

The Rights of Wand Usage are the basic regulations of who and how a wand may or may not be used. Such non-human begins as goblins and house-elves are banned from the right of owning or using a wand. For goblins in particular, this prohibition has been a point of contention with the wizarding community and caused several outbreaks of violence and small riots throughout Europe. No known formal prohibition exists for Muggles possessing a wand; they would of course be unable to use a wand anyway, but a Muggle's possession of a wand could be considered a breach of the International Statue of Wizarding Secrecy.

Any underage wizards or witches who are expelled from school are forbidden from practicing magic any further, and their wands will be confiscated and destroyed. Rubeus Hagrid's wand suffered such a fate, though it was somewhat repaired and kept inside his umbrella, and he is allowed to use that much. Gellert Grindelwald was expelled from Drumstrang, but he managed to maintain his wand (or procure another one) suggesting the wand confiscation only applies to Hogwarts students. Of course, any criminals arrested and imprisoned lose their wands as well: Barty Crouch Jr, claimed that he was not allowed a wand since Azkaban though their wands seem not destroyed but simply stored away because Bellatric Lestrange managed to retrieve her old wand after escaping prison.
