Suggestions have been adopted by the American Bar Association, the National Association of Legal Assistants (NALA), and the National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA) on the role and conduct of legal assistants or paralegals, the salient components of which I wish to summarize below, with each other with other additional notes on the topic matter, for legal analysis purposes of the visitors of this weblog. Serving as a liaison between the attorneys and legal assistants on the group, the case manager balances the workload among group members, supervises big team assignments, such as document production and database management, coordinates overtime schedules and forecasts staffing needs. The Litigation Legal Assistant Division operates in a quickly-paced, team-oriented environment. In 1968 the American Bar Association (ABA) created the Specific Committee on Lay Assistants for Lawyers. In addition to operating for law firms, legal assistants are now employed by corporations, banks, government agencies, and insurance companies.
