Fundamentals of Litigation for Paralegals, 9E offers a complete understanding of the litigation process from the time the client walks into the office through to trial and post-judgment, including settlements and alternative forms of resolutions. The successful, balanced approach presents a clear, complete overview of the litigation process, without bogging down in so many rules and procedures that the learning process is thwarted. The text’s clear, flexible organization allows the instructor to easily pick and choose the areas to cover in the course. Pedagogical aids throughout the text, including bold-face terms defined in the margins and in the glossary; numerous examples, charts, checklists, and sample documents; chapter overviews and summaries; and review questions, make the material much more accessible to students. The litigation file at the end of the materials allows the student to see samples, not just read, about the motions, pleadings, and discovery requests that are part of a litigation case.
