Editorial Reviews

Review

"The Miller/Urisko text has struck the right balance between legal information and its applicable "real world" practice. ... I have yet to find a text that covers paralegal ethics and career opportunities in such depth...This text is written more in the style of the way students today learn, by staying away from long stretches of text and interspersing it with eye catching insets and references to media. ... . I'm partial to the text because it has been and continues to be a 'toolkit' for entry-level and experienced paralegals. This is the type of book I call a 'keeper"

"This is an excellent text. The three part content arrangement into Profession, Skills and Substantive Law is very useful for course organization purposes. It is equally user friendly for both instructors and students, striking a balance between the need to impart an enormous amount of information to students and a style which makes it look like it is not an intimidating amount of information. Just right!"

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great text book, very informative and gives a great overview of the law, court systems and procedures. This text book was used in my LEGL 1001 Introduction to paralegal studies and ethics course. A great book for every American to read if they want to have a better understanding of what the legal system and law office is about. The book also contains in the Appendix copies of NALA and NFPA code of ethics, and the U.S. Constitution. This is a book that you could keep throughout your legal studies, or trade / sell back too. This review was posted with four classes left in the course.

This textbook is very omniscient and all encompassing of many different aspects of law. It describes the basics of law and then goes on into specific areas of the law.

I thought that this book was very informative. It introduced us, me and my classmates, to many aspects of law, not just the duties of a paralegal. The textbook covers guidelines for practicing legal assistants, branches of the state and federal court systems, how to read and write citations, which publications and websites paralegals need to use when employed in the field, a glossary, helpful hints provided by legal scholars and attorneys, the full US Constitution (including the amendments), diagrams, sample documents, and much more. "Paralegal Today" even included a 38 page SKILL PREP index, offering students suggestions about studying. I recommend this book for anyone whether you are pursuing a degree or certificate.

I rented this book through my kindle. It was perfect for my class. I didn't have to carry around a heavy bool and had all the information at my fingertips. The content of the book itself was a good overview of the paralegal field. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in paralegal studies.
