Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Finding the right legal assistant for your law firm may not be as easy as you think. The position of legal assistant or paralegal may attract job-seekers with any combination of skills and professional competencies. When hiring for the position, what do you look for?
Once upon a time, the term 'paralegal' and 'legal assistant' referred to two different jobs. However, the National Association of Legal Assistants together with the ABA declared that forthwith the two terms were (probably) interchangeable.
There still isn't universal agreement on this point. My preference is to reserve the term paralegal for someone who is a certified paralegal. That too is something you can look for when searching for "legal help."
Aside from getting the name right, here are the two most important things to consider when hiring:
