Summary

Bridging the gap between the classroom and the real world, A Practical Introduction to Paralegal Studies offers a thorough exploration of the entire paralegal profession. In a logical three-part organization, experienced author Deborah Bouchoux covers the fundamentals of the paralegal profession and the American legal system, along with the paralegal skills essential for success in the workplace. This engaging and well-written text provides the pragmatic and realistic information students need to hit the ground running.

New to the Third Edition:

  • All new Case Illustrations, Discussion Questions, and Internet Closing Arguments.
  • New forms provided throughout the text.
  • Up-to-date information on trends in regulation of the paralegal profession, including overview of innovative limited licensing programs in Washington and Utah as well as other proposals to close the access-to-justice gap.
  • Updated coverage of ethics, including new trends such as alternative business structures, and cutting-edge developments such as nonlawyer ownership of law firms, litigation financing, use of social media, and whether internet-accessible advice and forms constitute the unauthorized practice of law.
  • New developments in computer-assisted legal research, including the use of artificial intelligence and using free tools such as Google Scholar, GovInfo, Congress.gov, and CourtListener to access American law are discussed in Chapter 5.
  • Significantly expanded section on e-discovery in Chapter 8, including a sample privilege log.
  • New section in Chapter 11 on current disruptions to legal services, including alternative legal service providers and other trends.
  • New tips and approaches to getting a job, setting “SMART” goals, handling tricky interview questions, and future-proofing your career, as well as an expanded discussion of soft skills needed to succeed on the job in Chapters 10 and 12.

Professors and students will benefit from:

  • Topical coverage that closely adheres to the nature of paralegal work
  • Pedagogical devices that enhance learning, such as chapter overviews, key terms, marginal definitions, website references, case illustrations, practice tips, and chapter summaries
  • Research exercises and Internet-based exercises in each chapter that mirror those performed by the working paralegal
  • Charts, graphs, sample forms, and other aids to enhance learning
