A handbook for practicing and aspiring paralegals to the responsibilities and tasks of the field.
In this updated edition, a past president of the National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA) and a past president of the Indiana Paralegal Association cover the duties and ethical responsibilities of the paralegal (so that they don't cross the line to unauthorized practice of the law), and areas of practice. Appendices cover "e-discovery"--the discovery of electronically stored information, the NFPA code of ethics, and sample legal forms. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
