This book is poorly written and unedited. It is riddled with grammatical errors; the captions for the illustrations and samples are misleading; often the text that can't be distinguished from illustrations because of inconsistent use of fonts and dividing rules.
When one of the authors tried to discuss the difference between the executive, judiciary and legislative branches of the federal government, she forgot to describe the executive or perhaps didn't know what the president's function is.
One of the authors thinks that Black's is a common law dictionary. Perhaps she meant commonly used? No attorney would tolerate a paralegal or legal assistant with such poor communication skills as these authors possess; yet the book is supposed to teach the prospective paralegal to communicate in a legal environment.

The workbook is sloppily laid out without any thought to the amount of space needed to answer the question adequately. It's misleading when the question only requires a short answer and too much space is provided; the reverse is also true.

Excellent book for how to conduct different types of legal research. It is your bible for legal research. Excellent book. Better than the legal research book provided by the university I go to.

Although the Legal Research and Writing Handbook is geared for paralegals, it is a valuable guide for attorneys as well. The authors guide readers through each step necessary to use a research tool. In addition, readers learn how to integrate various research methods to perform comprehensive searches of legal materials. The writing portion of the book also provides a step by step approach to drafting documents. It is an excellent resource for all legal researchers and writers.

This text is clearly written and breaks down the mechanics of research and writing into easily understood steps. Great for students entering law school as well as for paralegals.

This textbook seemed to cover a lot of the processes used to research legal issues and covered the tasks and career options in the paralegal field.

This book is written perfectly, in a manner that is clear, concise, and easy to understand. The text covers everything that one would need to know for a legal and writing career, and certainly for a class. A must-have for any paralegal student anywhere. Fantastic book.
