It’s a matter of history.

I am engaged in a historical research project tracing the development of paralegal practice and the paralegal profession during the 1950s through the 1990s. (I’m working on a Masters in History. This project will start as a potential journal article, expand into my thesis, and possibly a book.) I am interested in state, local, and national paralegal association newsletters from that period and other documents – news stories, minutes of minutes, letters, etc. – that might provide information on what it was like to be a paralegal or legal assistant (even if you did not have that title) during that time. Early issues of magazines such as “Fact & Findings,” and the like would also be helpful. Contact me here or via email if you have documents or other information that might be helpful and you are willing to share. Ultimately, I’d like to interview some of the paralegals who practiced during that time period, so please let me know if you would be willing to be interviewed regarding your background, how you entered the legal profession, your first jobs, etc.
