By Ursula Furi-Perry

Lending Library Number: 157

NOTE: Due to licensing restrictions, the CD that accompanies this book may not be available for loan.

Paralegals and legal assistants need a thorough guide to all the rules and regulations dictating their job performance, as well as a repository of the many forms they see every day.

Now, the American Bar Association examines these myriad responsibilities in The Legal Assistant's Complete Desk Reference. This authoritative compendium provides the scope and definition of the proficient and successful legal assistant in six easy-to-use sections:

  • Part I: A Day in the Life of a Legal Assistant
  • Part II: Court Systems and Procedures
  • Part III: Preparing Legal Instruments, Documents and Court Filings
  • Part IV: Legal Research and Writing
  • Part V: Trial Preparation
  • Part VI: Areas of Practice

This comprehensive handbook also explores the career opportunities open to paralegals and legal assistants, as well as some common areas of legal practice and what they entail. Also included is a CD-ROM of sample forms and letters, a state-by-state resource guide, a glossary of common legal terms, and a thorough index.

This is the authoritative ABA guide paralegals and assistants need to efficiently complete all their many duties.
