This is an all-encompassing approach to looking at law office procedures. It reviews the law office and the court system then moves on to a detailed discussion of various specialty areas of law and the function of the paralegal or legal assistant in each. Assignments and projects give the reader a very real sense of work in a law office. And, those efforts are documented in a notebook within the publication which later serves as a valuable resource in carrying out similar assignments on the job. This publication coupled with an available forms manual makes for an invaluable combination.
