Now in its Second Edition, TORT LAW FOR PARALEGALS offers a comprehensive introduction to tort law based on real-world examples centered on the practicalities of daily legal work.

The text maintains the great features that made it so popular in its First Edition!

  • An easy-to-read and engaging style utilizes numerous examples and illustrations, emphasizing the practical nature of tort law
  • Broad coverage of all the key topics in tort law that paralegals need to know to succeed
  • A focus on practical skills will leave students with a true understanding of what it is like to practice in the real world. Topics include coverage of how law firms function, assessing cases for settlement value, investigating claims, billing hours, and evaluating insurance policies
  • A hypothetical case runs through all of the chapters, providing continuity in the material throughout the text, and a vehicle for illustrating various points in a coherent framework
  • Well-developed pedagogy includes various features, resources and case excerpts to guide students through the learning process. Key examples include: Issue at a Glance boxes that summarize important legal concepts; case excerpts that discuss legal theory and practical applications; \-Skills You Need in the Real World\- sections that emphasize practical paralegal skills; and Life of a Paralegal sections that highlight the work of an actual paralegal
  • Ethical issues are highlighted in a separate section at the end of each chapter
  • An ancillary Instructors Manual includes a test bank, lesson plans, suggested syllabi, Web resources, and additional assignments. A CD-ROM, including PowerPoint slides, is also available

This timely revision also integrates NEW & updated material:

  • Information has been updated to reflect the most recent in Web resources, case excerpts, and developments in the law
  • Assignments and exercises have been revised to capture the authors experience gained while teaching from the First Edition of the text
  • A shorter length and a carefully considered balance of materials make the text a prime and desirable source from which to teach
