Overview

Available in eCollege Format

Now in its Third Edition, Introduction to Paralegal Studies: A Critical Thinking Approach continues to offer a comprehensive, intelligent overview of all the key concepts covered in an introductory, paralegal studies course.

The text retains excellent features:

critical thinking approach, used to introduce students to the study of law, encourages them to interact with the material through hypothetical situations, examples, and well-designed questions
logical breakdown of information allows the text to mirror a sequence common to an introductory paralegal course. Material is presented in an accessible and well-organized format
• teaches students the basic skills necessary to understand statutes and court cases
strong pedagogy includes ethics alerts, marginal definitions, Internet references, and legal reasoning exercises
excellent ancillary package, including a comprehensive Instructor’s Manual, detailed Test Bank, and PowerPoint slides

This timely revision is carefully updated with new material:

• changes in organization make the text more accessible and logical to follow:

Civil Litigation (Ch. 6) is reorganized, beginning with a discussion of ADR and integrating the use of case studies to supplement the text
three new, shorter chapters, Torts (Ch. 7), Contracts and the UCC (Ch. 8), and Property and Specialized Practice Areas (Ch. 9), replace the longer Civil Law chapter of previous edition

new developments including references to new legislative and judicial developments involving federalism; eminent domain; reckless behavior; insanity; search and seizure; sentencing guidelines; capital punishment; and legal ethics are incorporated throughout the text, its legal reasoning exercises, and discussion questions
updated material on Ethics
• three new Paralegal Profiles, featuring paralegals working in the areas of intellectual property, municipal government, and paralegal management
