    Paralegal Procedures and Practices, 2nd Edition, by Scott A. Hatch, J.D. and Lisa Zimmer Hatch, M.A.

    After completing a Paralegal certificate course a few years ago, I purchased this new edition, simply for review purposes, and found this edition to be even more helpful than the first edition.

    This book contains a lot of updated information on such topics as legal research (manually as well as electronically), and legal document preparation, which are essential for any paralegal or student taking a paralegal course. There are also new exercises in this book that relate to business and corporate law.

    I highly recommend Paralegal Procedures and Practices, Second Edition, and wish to thank the authors for writing such an incredibly helpful second edition.
