Help With Handling – CEB Action Guides

Help with handling – CEB Action Guides

A previous post professed law librarian admiration for the checklists that Lexis practice guides offer to researchers.

We would be remiss to not also discuss the step-by-step procedural guides from CEB (Continuing Education of the Bar) – CEB Action Guides.

As stated on CEB’s website

Action Guides break down complex legal tasks into manageable steps, focusing on procedures and plans.  Within each guide, you’ll find comparisons of available options, details to consider, deadlines to meet, copies of legal forms to use, and case and treatise references.

At Alameda County Law Library, Action Guides are available via the OnLAW database on the public computers.  The guides can be read online or sections can be cut and pasted into a Word document then saved to a flash drive.

The series covers many important procedural topics.  Here is a list of titles:

  • Administering a Single-Person Trust After Settlor’s Death
  • Capacity and Undue Influence: Assessing, Challenging, and Defending
  • Enforcing Civil Money Judgments
  • Enforcing Security Interests in Personal Property
  • Funding a Revocable Trust
  • Handling a Probate
  • Handling a Real Property Foreclosure
  • Handling a Wrongful Termination Action
  • Handling Civil Appeals
  • Handling Civil Writs in the Courts of Appeal
  • Handling Claims Against Government Entities
  • Handling Depositions
  • Handling Expert Witnesses in California Courts
  • Handling Mechanics’ Liens and Related Remedies (Private Works)

ACLL does subscribe to a few of the Action Guides in print.  These guides are so useful and popular that they can go AWOL.  Ask for help when trying to locate on the shelf.
