Synopsis: Here is broad coverage of all the key topics in tort law that paralegals need to know, written in an engaging style with plenty of examples and illustrations. With an understanding of how law firms function in the real world, students develop practical skills--assessing cases for settlement value, investigating claims, billing hours, evaluating insurance policies, and more. One hypothetical case runs through Tort Law for Paralegals, providing a coherent framework for illustrating a multitude of topics. Forms and court documents relevant to this case are included in the appendix. A well-developed pedagogy features chapter objectives; "Issue at a Glance" boxes that summarize important legal concepts; marginal definitions; a wealth of figures, tables, and diagrams; Key Terms, Review Questions, and "Applying What You Have Learned" exercises; case excerpts; and features that prepare students for their jobs such as "Skills You Need in the Real World", "Life of a Paralegal", and a list of Web sites for gathering more information. Ethical issues are highlighted, with a separate section on ethics at the end of each chapter.

The Fourth Edition, thoroughly updated with changes in the law, presents new Tech Topics in each chapter that highlight new technological applications in tort law. Additional case excerpts have been added to the end of each chapter as well as crossword puzzles for review.
