This up-to-date text presents a practical approach for students in understanding the role of the paralegal in the litigation process. Civil Litigation is a comprehensive book that incorporates the use of technology in the law offices of today, and features realistic commentaries and exercises for practical application. This book is a valuable resource for anyone aspiring to a career in the paralegal profession.
"The text offers straightforward concepts, and the objectives are clearly presented in a way that allows a student to check off an objective as he/she masters it. The case references and discussions (even the technology-based discussions) are presented as real-world circumstances. The research case discussion provided in the text moves from the beginning to the end, which makes the experience more like that with which paralegals will be challenged in the law office or corporate legal office setting."

All the information is not very accurate. Like the definition for the word "Retainer" seem to be incomplete. It didn't mention the #1 thing a retainer is known for which is money. It said nothing about money directly concerning the definition of this particular word. I basically knew the meaning of this word and I am only a 2nd quarter paralegal student (so tell me something I don't know). Other than that I like the book. It's ok. A person who don't really know the basics can learn a lot (if they are patient enough to sift through all the extra long explanations in the chapters).
