I am an Assistant Professor of Legal Studies at The University of Mississippi. I am working on a research project dealing with professionalism among paralegals. My basic premise is that while the development of paralegal practice has paralleled that of physician assistants in the medical field, the perception of the paralegal as a professional – at least in the United States – has not. This is a detriment to the legal profession, the paralegal profession and the public. I’ve set up this blog as a forum for discussion of my basic premise and general discussion of professionalism among paralegals.
