Introduction to Paralegal Studies and the Law: A Practical Approach
Introduction to Paralegal Studies & the Law: A Practical Approach utilizes a storytelling approach that assists students in assimilating and organizing new concepts. The student is taken from the introduction to the client to the final collection of the judgment in the chronology that would normally occur in litigation. The text explores practical considerations such as docketing timelines, office politics, setting up and organizing files, timekeeping, and asset assessment. Strategical decisions are also explored as they arise naturally in the discovery process, motion practice, trial, and judgment collection. In contrast to Introduction to Paralegal Studies: A Practical Approach, this text is aimed at schools with a paralegal audience but whose coverage of the introductory material is somewhat broader. Specifically, this text includes chapters on substantive law not included in A Practical Approach.
