The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
This was just a blurb at Law Week Colorado but the publication reports that the Association of Corporate Counsel’s (ACC) 2009 Chief Legal Officer Survey shows “the increased use of paralegals, contract lawyers and administrative staff.”
Sorry that I can’t make the survey available to you, but the cost is $299.00.

In other good news, The Business Insider reports “Just 100 Legal Jobs Lost in February” and that “firms can only cut so many administrative assistants, paralegals and associates and remain solvent.”
