Interviewing and Investigating: Essential Skills for the Paralegal, Ninth Edition, provides a thorough and practical approach to helping paralegal students establish a strong foundation in interviewing and investigating skills. Experienced author Stephen Parsons carefully places that instruction in exactly the context of civil disputes, criminal prosecutions, and commercial business transactions where modern lawyers need assistants with those skills. Students learn how to identify and locate witnesses, obtain vital information from both public and private sources, and how to arrange and conduct effective interviews of clients and witnesses, both in the office and in the field. Throughout, the text uses explanations, examples, and illustrations along with realistic case studies with vetted student role-playing assignments to accomplish its pedagogical goals.

New to the Ninth Edition:
● New and freshened examples, hypotheticals, and Learn by Doing exercises
Updated references to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, and Federal Rules of Evidence
● All forms have been updated
Updated references to numerous online resources
● Chapters 1 and 2 contain expanded discussion of attorney responsibility and potential liability for paralegal conduct, including new ABA Formal Opinion 506 dealing with the use of paralegals for intake work

● In the chapters on communication skills and interviewing, fresh consideration of concepts such as implicit bias as the potential enemy of communication and comprehension.
