Interviewing and Investigating delivers a strong foundation in skills as well as the civil, criminal, and non-litigation context in which they are used. The practical emphasis throughout the text encourages students to learn by doing. The author brings almost thirty years of experience as a practitioner and teacher to bear, showing students the critical connection between law and fact, the best ways to engage in effective analysis, and the essentials of good communication skills. Well-crafted pedagogy in every chapter helps students apply the principles under review: illustrations, examples, hypotheticals, and Learn by Doing exercises. Examples are drawn from a variety of both civil and criminal, litigation and non-litigation scenarios. A key chapter on ethical issues and related material throughout the book emphasizes the professional standards expected of the paralegal.

Kristin Sikirica says:

not recommended There is no logical flow. It is very difficult to read and follow the material. The chapters provide key terms but the terms are not defined. Additionally, not all key terms are in the glossary.

Taryn T. says:
