For over 55 years, the ABA’s Standing Committee on Paralegals has been engaging and informing members of the legal profession on the benefits of working with qualified, well-educated paralegals. Most recently, the Standing Committee has published a second edition of a study, The Economic Benefits of Paralegal Utilization, elaborating on the fiscal benefits lawyers and law firms can experience when effectively utilizing paralegal services. Our aim is to help educate the legal profession on how paralegals not only help firms increase profits, amplify the return on investment, improve client satisfaction, and enhance lawyers’ quality of life, but also deliver quality legal services more accessibly and affordably to the community. Visit our website to learn more about the Committee’s resources for Lawyers, Paralegals and Paralegal Students. Contact Jessica Watson, Director of the ABA Standing Committee on Paralegals, with any questions or ideas on how the Committee can collaborate with your organization on furthering quality paralegal education and effective, ethical utilization of paralegal services.
