The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
The Cleveland Association of Paralegals, Inc. (CAP) is celebrating Ohio Paralegal Day May 17th. Governor Ted Strickland signed a Proclamation declaring the 3rd Monday in May as Ohio Paralegal Day. Mayor Frank G. Johnson signed a Proclamation designating May 17, 2010 as Paralegal Day in the City of Cleveland. The date was selected to mark the incorporation of the first paralegal association in Ohio – Paralegal Association of Central Ohio. It is a day to recognize the hard work and dedication that paralegals do on behalf of their employers and for the public.
Thanks to CAP for sharing its Paralegal Day press release. Several other states have celebrated Paralegal Day (although not on the same dates), including New York, Michigan, South Carolina, Texas, California, Connecticut and Utah.If you’re an Ohio paralegal, did you or your employer do anything special for your day?(If you’re like me and live in a state without an official Paralegal Day, you’ll just have to make do with St. Patrick’s Day.)
