Fundamentals of Law Office Management: Systems Procedures and Ethics, fourth edition, was created to present knowledge of the industry, an understanding of how a law office functions, and to provide essential skills. The text is divided into three sections in order to best accomplish these goals. The first section, consisting of five chapters, provides an overview of the legal industry. These chapters explain the parameters and policies of the business of law and provide a strong foundation upon which to build a legal career. The information contained in these chapters is essential to understand why law firms, and other types of legal offices, conduct business differently from other industries.
