New York Paralegal Handbook


The "How To" Guide for New York Paralegals!

The New York Paralegal Handbook has been used by thousands of paralegals, attorneys, law clerks and librarians, teachers and professors, New York Paralegal and CUNY paralegal school students, graduates and members of the New York Legal Community.


The handbook focuses on procedure, not theory.  While most legal practice guides contain confusing "legalese" and lengthy case analysis, New York Paralegal Handbook is different, because it tells you what to do and how to do it, in plain English.


Written by a top-notch team of New York attorneys and paralegal educators, New York Paralegal Handbook provides concise explanations of substantive law and practical "how-to" advice covering a broad range of important legal subjects.
