Paralegal: Home


Welcome to the PCC Library Paralegal Research Guide

Paralegals investigate cases, draft legal documents, and do legal research.

This guide is designed to point paralegal students to books, articles, websites, and other related information required for these tasks - for use both in your paralegal courses and on the job. 

Resources available for those seeking information on self representation in court, and locating legal advice in the community are listed below.

National Paralegal Reporter Access

The National Paralegal Reporter is the magazine of the National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA). The Reporter has a focus on delivering readers with practical advice they can use in their careers including: professional development, technology, ethics, project case studies, and diversity and inclusion. The print version of the magazine is in the Downtown Campus Library.

Facts and Findings Online Access

Facts and Findings is the official magazine of the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA). It  aims to provide educational articles on work related subjects and challenges to paralegals.

Community Users

While this guide has been created primarily for Pima Community College students, many of our resources are also available for use by community library users.

View print and electronic (ebooks) legal self-help resources from PCC Libraries' collection (from NOLO press) or from the University of Arizona Daniel Craccio Law Library's collection.

While librarians at these libraries can assist you in finding legal information, cannot give legal advice. Free civil legal aid is available to qualified low-income individuals and families through the Southern Arizona Legal Aid (SALA).
