The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
|Paralegal in a panda hat.|
One of the many reasons I blog for paralegals and legal staffers by any other name is to share information they may find helpful for professional development (or simply entertaining during a fast-paced week). Once a week I share links to a half dozen or so articles focusing on legal news, practice tips, technology and career dressing – plus a good laugh or two.
|My motion was granted!|
“National Access to Justice: A New Model” (The Empowered Paralegal) ~ What do you think about licensing paralegals under federal law to provide limited legal services?
Legal Files vs. Trees (Ms. Austen’s Cubicle) ~ Is your office still mired in stacks and stacks of paper?
A Few Things I Just Don’t Get (A Paralegal’s Life) ~ Grumpy Humbug shares a male’s point of view on Glee, fashion, and Jersey Shore. I feel ya, GH, cause I hate what my teens call “Jers-day.” But I’m a girl, and I like shoes.
Open to other possibilities (Superlegal Fun) ~ I love the Secretary posts, but am so glad Secretary doesn’t work for us!
Yes, I’m a Virtual Assistant. No, I’m not Siri. I’m better. (Clerical Advantage) ~ In a terrific post, Tina Marie Hilton, an amazing virtual assistant, explains why artificial intelligence can’t replace humans. Whew. ‘Cause I was worried Siri might want my job.
[Insanely] Popular Post: Printing Those Monster Excel Sheets (Legal Office Guru) ~ A video tutorial is available. Me, I love software how-to videos!
Should you dress up for Halloween at work? (Paralegal Pie) ~ Does your office – or local courthouse – dress up for Halloween? I usually wear fuzzy animal ears of some kind, until they get tangled up in my headset.
Dress for Sucess: The White Shirt (Lawyerist) ~ I believe every paralegal needs a basic no-iron classic white shirt in her (or his) wardrobe.
|Wrinkle Free rocks! But you can style it much better. (Amazon)|
Building Your Professional Wardrobe (workchic) ~ Great tips for following the dress code at work, while still reflecting your own personal style.
Coffee Is Number One Source of Anti-Oxidants (FutureLawyer) ~ YES!!! Go, Rick!
AND THEN I SAW A SASQUATCH ON THE ROAD (The Bloggess) ~ If you only put one blog in your Google feed reader, make it this one. Jenny can make me laugh out loud, even when I feel like crying.
