Who Dat AND Charlie Sheen!

“The New Orleans Paralegal Association’s educational seminar on Friday, October 7, 2011 offers a variety of legal topics ranging from the Who Dat and Charlie Sheen controversies to practical “how to” organize medical records or find out real estate information. Opportunities for career advancement, and information regarding national paralegal certification exams will also be available” according to a posting on PRWeb.com There are many good reasons to go to New Orleans (a daughter studying at Tulane tops the list at the moment), but it might be worth a trip just for this seminar!

Here’s more from the announcement:

Addressing everything from the controversies surrounding the Who Dat trademark and actor, Charlie Sheen’s tweets to the current trends regarding Green Litigation, NOPA made sure that this year’s seminar topics were current and relevant to paralegals. Additionally, there are practical “How To” classes on organizing medical records, obtaining real estate information and understanding criminal defense. “We wanted to make sure we touched on the varied interests of our growing profession,” Rolland said.

I’d mention the impressive luncheon speaker, but it isn’t I, so you’ll just have to read the announcement yourself.

Also this on a different topic:

Boasting a 50% growth in membership in the past two years, NOPA encourages its members to take advantage of the two national certifications offered through its parent organization, the National Federation of Paralegal Associations. Rolland believes the Paralegal Advanced Certification Exam (PACE) and the Paralegal Core Competency Exam (PCCE) that will be available online December 1, 2011, will help paralegals gain an edge in a job market that does not focus on a paralegal’s experience or specific set of skills. “The job description ‘paralegal’ has lost its meaning in recent years due to the blending of paralegal, file clerk and secretarial duties and these certification exams are a way to gain it back.”
