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.
