Definition of Legal Assistant·/ Paralegal
Definition of Legal Assistant·Paralegal: Legal assistants and paralegals are individuals who assist lawyers in the delivery of legal services. Legal assistants and paralegals cannot give legal advice to consumers of legal services. Legal advice may only be relied upon if given by an attorney. All states require attorneys to be licensed and most have statutes imposing penalties for the unauthorized practice of law. The following definition was adopted by the NALA membership in 1986. Definition: Legal assistants, also known as paralegals, are a distinguishable group of persons who assist attorneys in the delivery of legal services. Through formal education, training and experience, legal assistants have knowledge and expertise regarding the legal system and substantive and procedural law which qualify them to do work of a legal nature under the supervision of an attorney. In recognition of the similarity of the definitions and the need for one clear definition, in July 2001, the NALA membership approved a resolution to adopt the definition of the ABA as well. The ABA definition reads as follows: A legal assistant or paralegal is a person qualified by education, training or work experience who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, corporation, governmental agency or other entity who performs specifically delegated substantive legal work for which a lawyer is responsible. (Adopted by the ABA in 1997)
This program prepares students with comprehensive skills for an entry-level position as a Paralegal. The program is designed to provide students with an understanding of the legal system referencing the law office through the California and Federal Court Systems and local agencies. The student will develop a thorough knowledge and skill level in Family Law, Property Law, Business Law, Legal Writing and Procedures, and Torts. In addition, the student will develop a proficiency in keyboarding and word processing, as well as research skills using the Internet and other legal research systems.
Our curriculum covers the basics and is practical and realistic. We have
eliminated courses that you do NOT need or will never be able to use such as
Evidence, Paralegalism, Constitutional Law and Legal Terminology.
Legal terminology will be an ongoing part of every course you take, thus, you do not need a separate course to teach you terms out of context. Some of the other courses listed above are courses that you will not be called upon to use in your practice as a professional paralegal. The primary focus of this program is to give you the basic understandings of areas you will address most often with emphasis and focus on your ability to prepare legal documents.
Because of the nature of the law business and its constant demand to meet deadlines, you cannot expect to be trained "on-the-job". The skills you bring to the interview are your greatest asset. Thus we end our course with a practicum where you will be preparing numerous legal documents in class just as you will be expected to do on the job. You will receive memoranda from your employer with instructions on what you are expected to prepare.
This practical focus in PBLC's training is exactly what you need to know to be a valuable member to any legal team! And, upon completion, you will not only have your Certificate, but you will have a notebook full of complex, well-drafted documents to impress any potential employers!
