Paralegals are a very important part of the law firmís legal team and participate in almost all aspects of the provision of legal services to clients. Paralegals can perform multiple tasks and projects under the supervision of a licensed attorney. Paralegals also must be on the front lines to manage the law office and prevent ethics violations. This topic will help paralegals to identify crucial ethics issues and traps for the unwary and either prevent issues from occurring or manage issues when they occur.
