Madonna University professor publishes eighth edition of paralegal textbook

Mary Meinzinger Urisko, director of Madonna University's paralegal studies program, has published the eighth edition of the textbook The Paralegal Today; an introduction to law and paralegal studies.

Meinzinger Urisko originally coauthored the textbook with Roger Miller 25 years ago; it is still a key text for many paralegal instructors.

The Paralegal Today has been updated to reflect the evolution in how legal services are provided. The book's eighth edition covers traditional topics and also features many online tools.

Madonna University's paralegal courses are offered online, in live/synchronous, and asynchronous online formats. Students enjoy personal instruction in small classes. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects much faster than average employment growth for paralegals between 2019 and 2029. Program graduates are employed in local corporate legal departments, large and small law firms, and state and federal courts and government agencies.

Madonna University's paralegal studies program is approved by the American Bar Association and has maintained its status for more than 35 years. The program offers the only bachelor's degree in paralegal studies in Metro Detroit, along with an associate's degree and post baccalaureate certificate. Bachelor's degree completion programs are offered through the Macomb and Henry Ford University Centers.
