NYCPA’s Strategic Alliance with UK
I’ve previously mentioned that one of the New York City Paralegal Association’s most interesting projects is an alliance with the United Kingdom’s Institute of Paralegals to create transatlantic paralegal competency standards. The February edition of KNOW Newshas a story with more details about this project. It notes, “The Standards will reflect the usual paralegal career structure, being set at introductory, intermediate and advanced levels. Modelled upon the IOP’s existing UK competency standards, the draft transatlantic paralegal competency standards will be circulated for comment to all UK and US transatlantic firms.” More important it provides the contact information for those organization that might wish to have input into the standards:
Any firm or other relevant organisation interested in either being on the Joint Standards Working Party or having a watching brief should contact either:
James O’Connell at email@example.com or Nikki Doughty at firstname.lastname@example.org
