Paralegal to Speak at 2010 Conference on College Composition and Communication

Paralegal to Speak at 2010 Conference on College Composition and Communication

I believe it is critical for experienced paralegals to speak at educational conferences and share their knowledge, not only within the legal community but within the broader professional community as well. Paralegals often have advanced education and training, as well as strong oral and written communication skills, and they make excellent speakers.

Fellow North Carolinian Deborah “Debi” Welsh is a great example of a paralegal who gives generously of her time and knowledge. Welsh, currently serving on the North Carolina Advocates for Justice Legal Assistant Division Executive Committee as its Vice Chair, is speaking next week at the 2010 Conference on College Composition and Communication in Louisville, Kentucky.

Welsh, who has a master’s degree in public administration and also is a doctoral student in technical and professional discourse at East Carolina University, will be presenting during the “Sites of Advocacy” session. Her presentation is titled “Using civic rhetoric and Foucault’s systems of discourse to advocate for elderly infirm victims of nursing home abuse.”

Welsh specializes in civil litigation at Lawyers East in Greenville, North Carolina, and is a passionate advocate for paralegals and education. Because written advocacy for seriously injured individuals is one of my primary job duties, I’d be very interested to hear the presentation myself.

For more information about Welsh, see her well done LinkedIn profile, and follow her on Twitter: @dparalegal1.
