A recent post on the Paralegal Today discussion forum came from a paralegal whose employer wants her to become licensed by the NYS Workers’ Comp Board to represent clients in hearings. One person responded that she was in a similar position, only her employer wants herto be qualified for representation before the IRS.
I’d like to formulate a listing of these types of opportunities for paralegals to represent clients by qualifying as non-attorney representatives before governmental boards and agencies. These two are a good start. If any of you know of others, please let me know via comment here or email at email@example.com. Please provide the citation for the statute authorizing the non-attorney representation if you know it.
