The myth surrounding Paralegals, which appears to be promoted by certain traditional professionals, is that they are nothing more than would-be solicitors or barristers, trying to find training contracts or pupillages in vain. Such myths are exacerbated by the fact that many graduates are so desperate to gain experience that they are offering their services voluntarily or for a minimum return in the hope that they may be considered for a training contract. As one former CEO of a regulated legal organisation some time ago was recorded as stating: ‘Paralegals are nothing more than cannon fodder for solicitors.'
Those days are long gone.
