National Paralegal Day

National Paralegal Day is celebrated on October 23 in the United States. The holiday honors people without a law degree, but doing work in different areas of the region. These specialists have a great store of knowledge on certain issues, provide assistance to the population, but often remain unrecognized. The purpose of the date is to tell about the difficult work of such people and learn to appreciate it!

History

National Day is celebrated everywhere, but its founder has not yet been found. Perhaps an important date contributed to this – in 2017, paralegals received official recognition and were approved as court officials. Specialists became involved in the legal system and received a license.

In the 1970s, the issue of paralegals was raised. It required working with documents, preparing and copying them, communicating with clients, monitoring litigation and many other legal cases that are faced daily. After 3 years, the first seminars and workshops were organized, which taught people the skill.

The National Federation of Paralegal Associations has developed a code of ethics for assistants, created a task force based on the assessment results, and has done everything to support them. Today it has about 9000 individual members and 50 different organizations. At the same time, the numbers are only growing due to increased demand.

Interesting facts

Did you know that:

  • paralegals may attend meetings but may not sign documents or speak on behalf of the attorney/client;
  • in the USA, the profession is considered one of the most in demand;
  • research confirms that the paralegal field will grow by 12% over the next decade.

How to celebrate

If you know a professional friend, send him a postcard and please him with pleasant words. It is important for people to know that their work is appreciated and noticed! Order a cake or other treat at the nearest law office so that employees can celebrate their holiday. Have you dreamed of working in this direction for a long time?
