Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paralegal Today: The Legal Team at Work, fourth edition, makes the paralegal field come alive for the student. It uses real-world examples, offering practical application of each concept discussed, and further enhances this focus with hands-on activities throughout. The text gives the student a thorough introduction to not only the legal system in general, but to specific areas of the law and the paralegal's integral role as a member of the legal team. The student gains a comprehensive understanding of the laws in our society, the importance of ethical and professional responsibility, and the skills needed to thrive in this environment. Technology features, including spotlights on how technology is changing litigation, legal research, and overall office management, convey the importance of developing strong skills in this area. "Paralegal Profiles" and "Featured Guests" bring a personal touch to the material - as students learn how professionals truly work in each area of the law and how each skill directly translates on-the-job. Ethical dilemmas challenge the students to further understand their professional duties and critical thinking questions provide an opportunity to sharpen their proficiency. In this way, paralegal students learn not only about the substantive areas of the law, but how to excel as a professional in each one.

Synopsis:

All of the basic areas of paralegal studies are covered in this book. Careers, ethics, professional responsibilities, pretrial preparation, trial procedures, criminal law, legal interviewing, investigation, legal research, computer-assisted legal research, legal analysis, and legal writing. The text also covers introductory information in a number of different areas of substantive law, including business organizations, torts, civil, criminal, family and real estate. This book offers a completely different approach to teaching paralegal skills in the classroom, bridging the gap between classroom learning and on-the-job realities. Exercises at the end of chapters provide opportunities for students to apply the concepts and skills discussed in the chapter. Many of the books' other features were designed specifically to give students a glimpse of the type of situations and demands that they may encounter on the job as professional paralegals.
