The Litigation Paralegal: A Systems Approach, 4th Edition, is a completely updated guide to the litigation process, identifying the paralegal's role in each step. It covers numerous developments in the electronic practice of law, including e-mail security and confidentiality, electronic filing, on-line exercises, and helpful websites. The Litigation Paralegal is noted for its interesting and clear case scenario. This primary case is used to demonstrate concepts and paralegal practice skills, while other case scenarios are used to facilitate application of the skills and knowledge gained from reviewing the main case. With its law-office approach, logical arrangement, and excellent use of forms, checklists, and other documentation, this book is as helpful and appealing to the practicing paralegal as it is to the student.
