Paralegals, Day In and Day Out

I’m a fan of state paralegal days and weeks, and have posted regarding some of the declarations promulgated by governors designating these events. So I was pleased to see lawcrossing.com’s article on paralegal days. I especially like the Michigan statement of Michigan Governor Jennifer M. Granholm website that “the Bench and Bar have been able to respond to the dramatic increase in court caseload in recent years as a result of the evolution of the paralegal profession” and “the citizens of Michigan are better able to afford quality legal services because of the evolution of the legal profession.”

As the article notes, “Although paralegal days differ from state to state, the theme of appreciation that inspires them is the same,” but this declartions acknowledges not only that “paralegals have made to the legal profession over the years by taking on a large amount of legal work previously done only by attorneys,” but that the paralegal profession is evolving. Recognition of that evolution is helpful towards further evolution of the profession and, I believe, the evolution of a solution to access to justice problems that goes beyond simply allowing “”the Bench and Bar have been able to respond to the dramatic increase in court caseload.”
