We are excited to announce the UK’s first National Paralegal Day. This is a day to celebrate the work that Paralegals do and the contribution they make to the legal profession. Whether they are working within a solicitor’s practice, in house at a large  organisation or independently in their practice – Paralegals fill a void that has been created by the reduction in legal aid and the increase in the costs of training to be a lawyer. 

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. Each year they support solicitors and their teams and help them deliver high quality services to clients, and they work hard within organisations as diverse as local authorities and FTSE100 companies. 

To celebrate the contribution of Paralegals within the legal profession, National Association of Licensed Paralegals will be hosting an event on the 14th March 2019.  

More details about the event, awards on the night, and the speakers will follow. National Paralegal Day is an opportunity to celebrate, 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 Paralegals who have made an outstanding contribution to the profession.
