Legal Keys: Keyboarding Drills & Terminology, 5e
This highly successful, 354-page legal keyboarding text has been used by colleges across Canada for over 30 years. Now in its 5th edition, Legal Keys continues to challenge students to develop their expertise in keying legal material and to expand their knowledge of Canadian legal terms, documents, and procedures.
Legal Keys has 100% Canadian content and includes:
- Unit 2: Working in a Law Firm
- Unit 3: Civil Law & Litigation
- Unit 8: Wills & Estates Law
The text focuses on accurate, rhythmic keying. In particular it emphasizes:
- reading and understanding material before it is keyed
- setting performance goals
- conducting self-evaluation of progress
- using a dictionary and office handbook.
As legal documentation and procedures vary from province to province, every effort has been made to provide general materials so that Legal Keys may be used by students across Canada.
The drills, timed writings, and production exercises are presented in both keyed and "handwritten" format. They cover a wide variety of topics from the court system, to conveyancing and contract law. As students already have keyboarding skills, the drills and timings are not contrived in any way. The material presented is, therefore, relevant, topical, interesting, and informative.
