Case excerpts in each chapter provide a basis for discussing legal theory and its applications. Ethics topics are also covered in each chapter.
Well-structured pedagogy reinforces this readable text. Each chapter features a variety of effective learning aids, including sample forms and documents as well as exercises that encourage students to apply what they have learned. The Skills You Need in the Real World feature in each chapter highlights specific paralegal skills, from locating expert witnesses to creating a trial notebook and billing for time.
