This is an excellent reference book for novice paralegals who will provide support in the practice of personal injury law. It spells out tort law principles in an easy-to-comprehend manner and teaches the skills needed for the legal assistant to achieve success in this area. The authors have employed a number of effective teaching techniques, including 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. In this edition, particular attention has been paid to the increasing use of the Internet in legal organizations. Net News lists a wide variety of relevant legal Web sites, and Internet Inquiries encourage students to search the Internet for information related to tort law.
