Yesterday, Tita Brewster, President of the National Association of Legal Assistants and I were invited to speak on the topic of paralegals for the Podcast show, Lawyer2Lawyer. This was the first time I’ve participated in this type of show. (Yes, I’ve done radio & TV, video, newspaper, magazine articles but nothing so today.)
What an interesting experience! We are now seriously looking into doing a Paralegal2Paralegal show about important topics of high interest to paralegals: the current job market; trends; technology; cases affecting paralegals; human interest stories; profiles of courageous paralegals; paralegals working abroad; new or alternative careers; tips & techniques; and much more.
We would appreciate some feedback regarding your interests and whether Podcasting has caught on the paralegal and litigation support community. In the meantime, here’s the info on the show we were on:
Paralegals: The Backbone of the Law Practice
The work of a paralegal is never done. Although paralegals cannot offer legal advice to clients like attorneys, they are considered the backbone of the law practice. Join Law.com bloggers and co-hosts, J. Craig Williams and Robert Ambrogi as they explore the important role of a paralegal. Lawyer2Lawyer welcomes Tita A. Brewster, Current President of the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA) and Chere Estrin, CEO of Estrin LegalEd, to discuss a paralegal’s importance to a firm, the hurdles paralegals face, the Richlin Security Service Co v. Chertoff case and the growth of this legal profession.
