About the authors
Anne Adams

My path to paralegal textbook writing is circuitous. After receiving my Bachelor Degree in journalism from Boston University, I joined a writers#39; group. We contracted writing and research assignments and established our group health insurance. My assignments were police magazines. To understand my topic, I took courses in criminal justice. This culminated in a Master#39;s Degree in Criminal Justice from Northeastern University where my internship was at Pinkerton#39;s. I worked at different law firms as a freelancer and received my Paralegal Certificate from the National Paralegal Academy. While establishing my own research and writing business, I researched agencies, law libraries, and courts for lawyers. A lawyer was interviewing for teachers with hands on paralegal experience at the National Paralegal Academy, which had become the National Academy for Paralegal Studies. I received an appointment and taught at Curry College and Pine Manor College. To update my paralegal book for the Third Edition, I took courses in computer and media communications to build the Internet connection into the textbook. I#39;m enrolled in a Master#39;s Degree for School MediaLibrary Communications at Fitchburg State. I have served as the Massachusetts State Legal Advocacy Chair for the American Association of University Women.
