California Civil Litigation, fifth edition, is designed to provide practicing paralegals with information, skills, and experience. It follows the litigation process chronologically from initial client questions and contracts, to ethical issues, through the pleading and discovery phases, to trial, post-trial and appeal. Each phase of litigation is explored through official forms and drafted documents and each chapter includes highlighted glossary words and definitions to enable the reader to learn the technical language of litigation. In addition to the usual probing discussion questions, each chapter includes online projects requiring the reader to locate and analyze relevant Internet material. The purpose of the book is to provide the reader with not only the explanation of the process and examples of work product, but also actual experience in performing paralegal tasks as they would be performed in a professional setting. Assignments throughout the book are based on a single case by which the reader gradually assimilates the facts and procedural posture of the case as happens in practice, and develops work product as the case proceeds to trial and beyond. This fifth edition includes updated online projects, updated forms, charts, and drafted documents, and new material on electronic filing and service. California Civil Litigation is designed to be a true paralegal practice book preparing the reader for employment in the real world.
