This text for paralegal, legal secretarial, legal administration, and law students describes a legal environment and how the student fits into that environment. Through complete and easy-to-follow information, it familiarizes the student with procedures, system, and ethics that make law offices different from other industries. Structured to accommodate students who plan to work in a small law office, large law office, the government or a corporate legal department, this text uses skill oriented instruction in areas such as timekeeping, file management, document management, and library maintenance. A new chapter has been added dealing with paralegal ethics and client relations, and most chapters have an ethics section that illustrates the ethics of the subject matter. Each chapter includes a chapter summary, chapter illustration, and review, as well as examples for discussion, a self-test, and key words. There are a variety of assignments for students including written, oral, research, and group work.ALSO AVAILABLEINSTRUCTOR SUPPLEMENTS CALL CUSTOMER SUPPORT TO ORDERInstructorAEs Manual with Test Bank and Powerpoint Slides on DiskISBN:0-7668-0882-3COMING SOONWest Paralegal Comprehensive CTB-2000-II, ISBN: 0-7668-1773-3"
