Series Title: The Paralegal Practice vs. Changes in the Legal Landscape
Paralegals and law clerks are the lifeblood of most mid- to large-size organizations. With clients demanding lower costs while profitability dictates increased use of value-based billing, it’s essential that paralegals adapt to the changes in the legal industry and position themselves to meet the new demands.
In a series of articles, Catherine will address ways in which paralegals can enhance their skills, knowledge and practice management to become the “Go To” paralegal and secure their professional future. From examining prevailing trends in the profession through to providing strong paralegal leadership, the series paves the way for growth and development for exceptional paralegals.
