, Rebecca Jaremko Bromwich
The rules and scope of the work of paralegals are ever evolving. Those wishing to start their own practice need to be aware of not only the rules at play, but also of the steps and legal requirements involved in starting a business. Practice Management for Paralegals is the only text of its kind devoted to the marketing and management of paralegal businesses.
The text offers key insights into the guiding principles of paralegal practice with a focus on the Paralegal Professional Conduct Guidelines and Paralegal Rules of Conduct. It addresses the proposed expansion of paralegal work to include family law, as recommended in the Bonkalo report, and discusses new regulations concerning the marketing of paralegal services.
The book is also rich with practical resources like sample business plans and retainer letters, as well as numerous “Apply the Law” and “Planning for Practice” scenarios to engage readers and accurately depict what it’s like to run a firm.
This in-depth exploration of pertinent topics paired with practical elements provides readers with a comprehensive understanding of the various obligations and challenges associated with self-employment and business ownership.
