There are three kinds of crucial traits that paralegals need to have to be effective and help their lawyers. These traits are dependability, flexibility, and durability.

Dependability. We are all part of a big team. Your lawyer, you, other paralegals, your client, court personnel, all one team trying to accomplish a similar goal. It’s not much different than members of a sports team, and what most of us have learned growing up about teams is that we need to be able to depend on each other; whether we are winning or losing. 

Gone are the days of "hereto" and "to wit." We need to write so people can easily understand our arguments. This session helps teach you how to do just that.

Everyone talks about protecting corporate data, but what about our personal data and protection? Is it all the same? Are we doomed? Should we just accept that all our information is floating around the dark web? A commonsense approach will go a long way to protect you and your family.

Meetings—we all have them. The bad news? It is estimated that Fortune 500 companies waste 75 million dollars per year in unproductive meeting time. The good news? Most of the factors that disrupt productivity are in the control of meeting attendees. This training helps participants develop skills to ensure meetings are an advantage instead of a disadvantage to both employees and organizations alike.

Over the years, diversity, equity, and inclusion have increasingly become a focus in the legal profession. Law firms and companies that employ legal professionals are coming to understand that to provide the best service to clients and customers, those that work on legal matters must be representative of society at large and the environments in which legal professionals work must be inclusive and equitable. In this session, we will explore diversity, equity, and inclusion and detail ways that you can be involved in advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the legal profession.
