The way lawyers, paralegals and legal professionals work is changing with the emergence of new ways to work like telecommuting and outsourcing.
Paralegal? Legal assistant? Legal secretary? The legal industry is full of terms that describe non-lawyer legal professionals. These terms overlap and get confusing quickly. But now, the official definition of the term “paralegal” is changing, thanks to a recent resolution that was proposed by the National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA).
Learning and growing is essential in any profession, but especially in the legal field. Paralegals, legal assistants and other legal professionals have to be dedicated to the improvement of their skills and open to learning new ones to stay at the top of their field.
