Taking a hands-on approach, it offers comprehensive coverage and uses practice tips, critical thinking exercises, landmark case law, case scenarios, and portfolio builders to reinforce concepts. At the beginning of the text, each student is asked to create their own mock business that can be used to complete chapter assignments and exercises. Throughout the text, articles written by practicing paralegals are included to assist students as they transition from student to practicing paralegal.
