Civil Litigation is a book designed to familiarize the paralegal with all aspects of the civil litigation process and the role of the paralegal in that process. It combines substantive legal principles, and offers practical applications of those principles through use of numerous sample documents. The book presents a chronological approach to litigation, starting with the opening stages of a lawsuit, progressing to the preparing of pleadings and motions, followed by discovery, and concluding with pre-trial, trial and appellate proceedings. Litigation technology and relevant Internet sources are also incorporated into each chapter. This revised book is an excellent resource for those seeking a paralegal career in a litigation practice.Peggy Kerley is the author of 'Civil Litigation (West Legal Studies)', published 2000 under ISBN 9780766826694 and ISBN 0766826694.
