Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The text is well-written and organized in a manner that is beneficial to teaching legal terminology. The numerous options for student exercises are helpful for teaching purposes and also extremely helpful for the students' review."

"Another great addition is the introduction of case summaries in the beginning of each chapter. It is helpful for students to see the use of legal terminology in actual court opinions. It gives students a real life setting in which they will be working."

"The overall comprehensive nature of the text in covering so many subject areas of law might make this a handy desk reference for a paralegal student, as well as a review for those programs requiring an exit exam or capstone course."
