The Professional Paralegal Workbook is a text that was conceived out of necessity. Many paralegal texts lack certain subject matter and can be unwieldy as a general reference and exercise book for students. This book was developed to bridge those gaps. Areas that are thoroughly covered are criminal, tort and contract law. The text includes chapters on these subjects that examine the essential elements of the law and include discussion points to facilitate classroom interaction. There are also exercises designed to be used either in the classroom in breakout groups, as study methods, or as homework assignments. This text is one that students can utilize both in class and during study periods. It functions as a launch pad for classroom discussions and creates many opportunities for students to review material covered in class, allowing for a full understanding while studying. The range of subject matter is attractive to most general law courses and is applicable to both the paralegal market and the undergraduate pre-law course. The concise yet thorough treatment of substantive law issues is coupled with interactive and hands-on exercises and discussions. Legal analysis, writing and research are covered in addition to the treatment of substantive law. The workbook is an interactive, portable text that students and instructors can easily utilize in both a classroom and home study environment.

I would most definitely use this workbook. A practical, hands-on assignment tool such as this would be a great aid to the student in the initial orientation and learning process.
This workbook could be used in a civil litigation course; ideally, this would provide a brief review of the elements of civil procedure and would discuss remedies.
I like the workbooks in-class exercises, library exercises and writing assignments, and the tour of the legal process that is offered in the beginning of the book.
