We are excited to announce the UK's second annual National Paralegal Day celebrations. This year, there will be an event in London and in Leeds to give as much opportunity as possible to enable attendance. The events are to celebrate the work that Paralegals do and the contribution they make to the legal profession.
Whether Paralegals work within a solicitor's practice, in house at a large organisation or independently in their own practice - Paralegals fill a void that has been created by the reduction in legal aid.
Paralegals are often the unsung, unrecognised members of the legal profession - and yet, each year, they help thousands of people who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford legal representation.
On an ongoing basis they support solicitors and their teams to deliver high quality services to clients, and they work hard within organisations as diverse as local authorities, charities and FTSE100 companies.
To celebrate the contribution that Paralegals make within the legal services sector, NALP, sponsored by NPC (National Paralegal College), Finders International and Barbri will be hosting two events: one at the House of Commons in London and another at The Civic Hall in Leeds. Times and dates are to be confirmed.
This year, we are not only inviting Members of NALP to join us, but also any Paralegals who as yet are not NALP members, for an evening of celebration, an opportunity to network, to meet old friends and new, and to learn more about the role of paralegals within the legal profession. There will also be an awards ceremony to recognise those Paralegals who have made an outstanding contribution to the profession. Come join us!
