The task of learning to be a litigation paralegal is primarily learning to use the tools of the trade. As a carpenter must learn to wield a hammer and the chef use a whisk, so must the litigation assistant learn to use the Subpoena, the Request for Production of Documents, and how to organize documents into witness files.
The major difference between these professions is, for the paralegal, that the use of the tools of his or her profession is not governed by custom or common sense, but rather by the laws of the State. Failure to use the tools correctly results not in a fallen soufflé, but in a possible loss to the client of millions of dollars.
This roundabout analogy illustrates the purpose of this book, not only to introduce the reader to the skills and tools needed to be a paralegal, but also to show how these tools are used within the rules, laws, and guidelines followed in the State of California.
This is not an easy profession; the hours can be long, the work tedious, and the fellow workers less than sane. But a grounding in the use of the profession's tools, along with the statutes and rules that govern the use, will lead to success.
