  • I was interested in this quote from one of the comments above...

    "The 'pen pushing office fodder’ referred to by some are not Paralegals but merely administrative clerks."

    Anyone setting up a representative body for 'pen pushing office fodder'.... ?

  • I have recently completed the company law course with CLT Scotland. The course was very well structured, very well written, easily understood ( unlike some law texts) and the staff and tutor support was incredible. Professional, efficient and very helpful and pleasant. I had no knowledge of the subject, yet now, I not only understand the theory I can use it in practice. And there are not many courses that can prepare you for the “real thing”. I would recommend this course to anybody who has an interest in law or wishes to pursue a career in legal environment. Whilst a lawyer may have a knowledge in different law subjects, a professional paralegal will have a thorough knowledge and in a particular subject.

  • Well said Charon QC! Can anyone else here please distinguish between a debate about the best way to promote professional standards for paralegals and an unseemly squabble over market share? This exchange does the putative paralegal 'profession' no favours whatsoever.
