Tort Law for Legal Assistants, Third Edition strikes an excellent balance between academic coverage of tort law principles and practical coverage of skills requisite for the personal injury legal assistant. And, in response to the increasing use of technology in the legal field, special emphasis is placed on using the Internet to search for information related to tort law. The authors have used an informal writing style, and they have made every effort to keep readers engaged through a host of techniques. For example, each chapter is introduced using a simple, often lighthearted, hypothetical. Each chapter contains Practice Pointers that introduce students to such practical skills as drafting pleadings, preparing medical authorization requests, documenting damages, writing FOIA letters, and assembling trial exhibits. Review questions and practice exams allow students to test their mastery of chapter materials. An instructor's manual with test bank complements this practical teaching text.
