PARALEGAL DEFINITION

A paralegal/legal assistant who is qualified through education, training, or work experience, is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, governmental agency or other entity in a capacity or function which involves the performance, under the direction and supervision of a lawyer, of specifically delegated substantive legal work, which work, for the most part, requires sufficient knowledge of legal concepts that, absent that paralegal or legal assistant, the lawyer would perform the task.
NJSBA Bylaws, Article 1 - 2(d).

OUR MISSION

The Paralegal Committee encourages the positive development and advancement of the paralegal profession in New Jersey. The committee promotes opportunities to educate both attorneys and the public on the appropriate use of paralegals in a legal setting, and facilitates continuing legal education for paralegals.
