    This book is very useful for anyone who is interested in becoming a legal secretary. Not only does it cover all of the various legal documents that are prepared in a law office, but it also explains calendaring, telephone skills and billing systems. In addition, there are chapters on legal research and getting a job. This is a very thorough book and I highly recommend it!

    This average book for the most part is good to use as a general reference. It is somewhat outdated and it uses California law for most of its examples so if you live in another state, you’ll need to find out what the law is in YOUR state. The best parts of the book are the practice exercises at the end of each chapter in which you use the disk provided. This gives “hands-on” experience.
