Scaros' readable and easily understood Introduction to Law text guides students through all the basic concepts while piquing their interest and encouraging them to build upon the basics. Clear, friendly, and easy to follow, the book features not only the concepts, but the connections between them—showing clearly how the law actually works beneath all its daunting complexity.Building an informative and reassuring foundation, LEARNING ABOUT THE LAW begins with an overview of the legal profession and the American legal system, then continues with separate chapters on the key paralegal skills of:

  • researching sources of law
  • briefing a case
  • legal writing The text shows how to develop these newly-learned skills in contracts, torts, and criminal law-effectively combining learning and doing. A separate chapter on ethics is also included, and exercises, examples, as well as lists of key terms in every chapter serve to reinforce learning every concept and activity.Of special note are excellent examples which carefully explain concepts in terms students will easily understand and remember.Other practical features include charts, illustrations, and photos, plus appendices including the U.S. Constitution, the Emancipation Proclamation, full texts of six landmark cases, and relevant ethical codes.
