About the Author:

William Putman is a lawyer and former instructor in the programs for Legal Assistant Studies at Central New Mexico Community College in Albuquerque and Paralegal Studies at Santa Fe Community College. A member of the New Mexico Bar since 1975, he received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of New Mexico School of Law.

Review:

We have done an informal survey of a number of our authors and also of paralegal instructors and program directors, and consensus was that this kind of resource would be very useful in paralegal courses and that there would be great demand by students and professors for such a product.
