Overview

This book is the most comprehensive text available and examines all facets of civil litigation. This is the only litigation text for the paralegal that makes an effort to explain legal theory and trial strategy. The focus is on judicial procedures and rules of law, not generic law office procedures. The authors' objective is to make paralegal full members of the litigation team so they know what is happening and what the next step should be. Paralegals should feel as though they are contributors, not merely assisting. Since civil litigation is directed and controlled by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, this book focuses on the rules, explains those rules, how they operate and how they apply to a paralegal's work. Paralegals who master the information in this book will be able to communicate effectively with lawyers about civil litigation matters.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
New edition of a text that prepares paralegal students to work with lawyers as members of a litigation team. Roderick Blanchard (specialist in civil litigation) and Robert S. Blanchard (president of a strategic counseling firm) present 23 chapters that describe and explain the civil justice system and explain how courts are organized, how they function, what lawyers do to make the system work, what paralegals may do, and how they should do it. Their pragmatic approach discusses litigation procedures as they actually are conducted. Each chapter starts with a hypothetical case. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
