Format: Paperback
After reading this book, I was a little dissapointed. It is more of a backgound of the job of a paralegal than anyhting else. If you want to know who, what, and how much you make as a paralegal if you are considering it as a job, then I would suggest this book. However, if you want case research, then I would not recomend ths book. One good thing is it is written an english, not legal trems.

A very good research book in the paralegal profession. It provided me the resource to further my interest in attending law school. Everyone should work as a paralegal before attending law school.
