Introduction to Family Law combines the study of legal theory and practical application with a fictional storyline that lets the reader share in the many experiences of a new paralegal on the job. Susan, the fictional character who has recently graduated, addresses many family legal issues as she serves as interviewer, researcher, writer, and motion and pleadings preparer. The reader, in turn, shares in the challenges, rewards and humor experienced in this typical family law practice. Within each chapter, the reader learns about legal theory, pertinent case briefs, and practical exhibits through this fictional storyline. Chapter summaries, review questions, key terms, and online resources support learning and retention. A comprehensive glossary and lists of industry resources make this study guide a useful reference tool, as well.
