The UK National Association of Paralegals states:
“The work that Paralegals undertake is quite often virtually indistinguishable from that undertaken by Solicitors. Many organisations are now employing paralegals, as opposed to ‘in house’ solicitors, as a more financially viable alternative if there are tasks requiring a legal content to them. Their duties involve them working closely with Solicitors and Barristers and may take them from office to courtroom, from clients to conferences, from the law library to the negotiating table”
