Fundamentals of California Litigation for Paralegals offers a complete understanding of the litigation process from the time the client walks into the office through trial and post-judgment. Its balanced approach does not oversimplify the process, but covers the right amount of rules and procedures for students to embrace. Tailored to the California rules, each chapter references the specific California statute where further information can be found. California forms are included throughout the text. Abundant study aids make the material highly accessible and include bold-face terms defined in the glossary; numerous examples, charts, checklists, and sample documents; chapter overviews and summaries; and review questions. The text allows instructors flexibility in choosing topics while still providing a full overview for students. A litigation file at the end contains sample motions, pleadings, and discovery requests that are part of a case. A workbook on CD that comes with the text has five case scenarios based on California law for use in completing assignments and as case studies in class. The updated Fifth Edition includes amendments to the Code of Civil Procedure, California Rules of Court, and Judicial Council forms. The text now incorporates social media tools as part of a litigation practice.
