Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"My reaction to this textbook is very favorable. It was a great review of legal concepts and I can see students enjoying this book. It is well-written and straightforward; it is a high-quality product. If I had to recommend a book for paralegal students, this would be near the top of my list."

    4th Edition

    There are several typographical errors that significantly change the legal intention of sentences. For example, words such as "not" are left out at times. Regardless, the 5th edition has been released, so this review is rather pointless.
