This is the only paralegal contracts text that discusses ethics and the unauthorized practice of law while outlining just where a paralegal can use contracts skills and knowledge! This is the only paralegal contracts text to explore planning and drafting contracts using the information learned in each chapter! Amazing book!!!!
I used Contract law for Legal Professionals to really learn contracts. It is a straight forward and amazing book. Very short, not a lot of fluff. You really learn the rules. My husband said that he wished he had it in law school to learn contracts. This book is so well written.
