Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I find this to be a superior textbook. I tell my students that, if they keep only one book from the program, it should be this one....am not familiar with any serious competitors to this text. We regularly receive sample texts from various publishers, and a perfunctory "flip-through" is usually enough to assure us that we continue to use the best available textbook for this course."

"I think the book is excellent, and I've had the opportunity to use it in practice. Students enjoy reading it - they particularly love to read about paralegals and the different settings in which they work."

"I think your text does what others aspire to do, in a concise easy to follow format you have organized the essential chapters for beginning paralegal students. Your text is up to date and the content is assembled perfectly for lecture format . . . no need to skip around. The logical flow of the information makes Paralegal Today a sound choice for any instructor or program."

"Paralegal Today is the only publication that contains the detailed and understandable coverage, variety of excellent student aids, and support that I want for my students."
