The recent release of Paralegal Career for Dummies by Wiley Publishing has saved my private practice a significant amount of time that I had been devoting over the last 30 years to training my neophyte legal secretary and paralegal office staff in the critical areas of ethics, document preparation, legal research, and legal writing. My private law practice outside of my professorship has suddenly, and perceptively, been made more efficient when the authors of the nationally renowned Paralegal Certificate Course© placed their knowledge and techniques into text format. The essential legal career skills set forth in Paralegal Career for Dummies obviate my need to provide extensive background training to my new staff employees whether I am recruiting from the medical or legal professions. An integral part of the training of the legal assistants who are hired to work in my private practice consists of detailed comprehension tests from the textbook covering the substantive material that most directly pertains to areas of my particular law practice. Beginning with its introduction to the American Judicial System (¿Because I Said So¿), through litigation skills and strategies for the paralegal (¿The Paper Waste¿), I do not have to ¿Burn the Midnight Oil¿ conducting seemingly endless hours of legal research since this book teaches and trains my staff in the nitty gritty practical skills that Yale Law School did not always provide me. I highly recommend this book to practitioners and their legal staff, and I am confident that it will save a significant amount of time and money by making the practice of law more efficient and accessible to all.
