"Depth of coverage. The material is covered thoroughly and in an easy to understand manner. This is a great strength of a textbook used in an introductory course. Topics covered. The text covers almost every conceivable topic that can be taught in an introductory paralegal course. This provides the instructor with options for coverage in a classroom. The assignments. There is a variety of assignments at the end of the chapter. This provides the instructor with multiple opportunities to assess learning and to reinforce the material covered."
"Excellent format. The use of additional features, such as technology, ethics, developing skills and practice focus give students a real-life look at the types of tasks that will take place in an actual paralegal position. Significant number of "hands-on" activities. These are so important in training paralegals to be successful in this career field. All of our paralegal programs focus on hands-on assignments throughout the curriculum. New ways to apply legal concepts in an applied learning format significantly enhances this text. Large number of teaching supplements."
