Book Recommendation: Lessons from the Top Paralegal Experts: The 15 Most Successful Paralegals and What You can Learn from Them



There are only so many times you can read about procedure before you start to ask yourself, what should I be doing, really? It's one thing to know the rules; it's a whole different ballgame when you're talking about the day to day aspects of a paralegal career. Most paralegal books are theoretical “How-To” books but offer few words in the way of practical applications. Not this one.

In Lessons from the Top Paralegal Experts: The 15 Most Successful Paralegals and What You can Learn from Them, Carole Bruno found fifteen paralegals who know what they're doing and were able to flesh out the job descriptions and fill in the details that somehow were missed in paralegal courses. I've found all sorts of useful information, and I end up flipping through it on a regular basis. Something new always jumps out at me, and I'll take that tidbit to work and implement it and think, "Why didn't I think of this?!" Bruno picked paralegals in a variety of specialties: litigation, intellectual property, commercial and residential real estate, bankruptcy, corporate and business, and family law, and wrote concise, useful tips from each of these paralegals that can be practically applied to the job.

Even better, the profiles are broken down into bite-size pieces of information, which makes it easy to read in a busy schedule. This is a useful book that is a fantastic reference for any paralegal.
