Written and edited by leading practitioners, the New York Lawyer's Deskbook consists of 27 chapters, each covering a different area of practice. Each chapter is intended as a starting point for new practitioners or for practitioners who may not have previously encountered a particular subject area.
New attorneys will benefit from the clear, basic review of a particular subject area and the necessary steps involved in handling a particular transaction. By focusing on the basics, the Deskbook fills the gap between sketchy outlines, which are of little help to the novice attorney, and the voluminous reference sources, which very often are difficult to understand.
Practitioners familiar with a subject area will benefit from the numerous “Practice Guides” and from using the Deskbook as a refresher to reinforce their own methods of practice.
Annual updates allow you to keep up to date and practice with confidence. The 2013–2014 supplement is current through the 2013 New York State legislative session.
