NALP's CEO Amanda Hamilton discusses the future of the Legal Sector, with Simply Law Jobs one of our Trusted Partners. 

 

Paralegals are now emerging as the fastest growing legal service professionals. The work that paralegals do, offers a lifeline into a sector that disappointed graduates may not otherwise be able to enter into.  The slack left by the virtual eradication of legal aid is being filled by paralegals and offers a lifeline to consumers. And yet, there still remains a reluctance (or is it fear?) on the part of the regulated professions to recognise paralegals as independent professionals in their own right, when all that paralegals are trying to do is to fill the gaps left as a consequence of decisions made by the traditional professions.

We’ve been working with Simply Law Jobs to promote the position of Paralegals, encouraging recruiters to look for NALP Members and NALP Qualified Paralegals when hiring. This supports our ongoing mission to gain you professional recognition for the work you do, and highlight the vital role Paralegals play within the Legal Services Sector and across a variety of industries.
