Description


Legal Research and Writing for Paralegals takes students on a step-by-step journey through the intricacies of researching legal issues and creating legal documents. The focus is on critical areas paralegals deal with daily: what law is and how to find it, what role the Internet plays in legal research, how to incorporate legal research into writing, and how to create an array of legal documents. Ethics are integral to the practice of law, and each chapter addresses issues particularly relevant to paralegals. The many practical assignments throughout and at the end of each chapter allow students to put into practice what they are learning about research and writing. The pedagogy of the book focuses on three main goals: Learning outcomes (critical thinking, vocabulary building, skill development, issues analysis, writing practice) Relevance of topics without sacrificing theory (ethical challenges, current law practices, technology application) Practical application (real-world exercises, practical advice, portfolio creation)
