Follows, from beginning to end, a fictional story of one real estate transfer with a built-in problem ("the garden variety purchase of a home"). Exposes readers not only to the legal aspects of the transaction, and to the parts played by the professionals, their expertise, their language, and the timeline of the transaction, but to the human motivation and interaction of the people, clients, and co-workers involved. Concentrates on the application of specific paralegal skills and demonstrates the transference of skills from other areas, e.g. legal research, psychology, and interpersonal communications. Dissects deeds from different states to show that all deeds are basically the same. Features accompanying interactive software -- Docs on Disk (title, documents); The Name Game (real estate terminology).
