"The paralegal to do list. This is great because it still puts the focus on the criminal paralegal. So if a student is not sure what a criminal paralegal does, this will give them an idea what to expect. Plus it is in every chapter. I feel this is one of the strongest parts of this textbook."
"The examples are excellent. I particularly like "Insider's Viewpoint," which focus on district attorneys, prosecutors, detectives, and others who are directly connected with the criminal law field and have great experience that they share for the paralegal student's benefit."
