An attorney’s perspective on paralegal coordination in the modern law office.

This session explores the challenges and issues that arise in the modern legal office. The role of the paralegal changes depending on the size of the law office, the state where the practice is located, the kind of law the firm practices, and the personality of the lawyers involved. This session includes, from an attorney’s perspective, lessons and insight into how to maximize the paralegal’s value to a law firm, whether working with a sole practitioner or a firm with multiple offices in different cities.  Topics will include electronic discovery and the paperless law office, internal communication with other staff, communication with clients/witnesses/opposing counsel, and includes expected participation from the attendees along with an open question and answer format.
