Interviewing and Investigating delivers a strong foundation in skills as well as the civil, criminal, and non-litigation context in which they are used. The practical emphasis throughout the text encourages students to “learn by doing.” The author brings almost thirty years of experience as a practitioner and teacher to bear, showing students the critical connection between law and fact, the best ways to engage in effective analysis, and the essentials of good communication skills. Well-crafted pedagogy in every chapter helps students apply the principles under review: illustrations, examples, hypotheticals, and Learn by Doing exercises. Examples are drawn from a variety of both civil and criminal, litigation and non-litigation scenarios. A key chapter on ethical issues and related material throughout the book emphasizes the professional standards expected of the paralegal. Four case studies designed to be used with the “Learn by Doing” exercises in each chapter provide realistic scenarios for applying concepts. Useful appendices provide resources, including extensive information on online assistance for investigators. The flexible organization suits a variety of course configurations. The Instructor’s Manual includes a sample syllabus, suggestions for use as either a one or two-semester course, approaches to teaching the materials, character descriptions to accompany the case studies, instructions for role playing in the case studies, a sample form to use in evaluating student interviewers, and a test bank covering each chapter of the text.
