The Litigation Paralegal: A Systems Approach, fifth edition provides students and faculty with a learning resource written specifically for them. It is a resource combining the theories and principles of law with practical paralegal skills, paralegal ethics, numerous forms, checklists, practice tips, online resources, and a focus on the goals and needs of the paralegal profession, all in the context of the law office. This text also provides instructors with the flexibility to utilize the step-by-step law office litigation system, which stresses student organizational skills and quality control techniques, or any other approach of the instructor's choosing.
