    A ROCK AND A HARD PLACE:  THE PARALEGAL AND
    the Unauthorized Practice of Law

    Presentation by J. Nick Badgerow


    Avoiding the unauthorized practice of law is THE most important thing we must know as paralegals.  It seems pretty black and white.  Paralegals cannot represent clients in court and cannot give legal advice.  


    It is the second part that can sometimes fall into the gray area.  What does and does not constitute legal advice? Can you help the public complete legal forms and documents? Can you relay legal advice that comes from an attorney? Can you tell a friend or family member that they need to contact an attorney? Can you prepare and approve company contracts as an in-house paralegal?  


    Register and find out!


    Join us for check-in and networking between 5:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.


    This meeting and CLE is open to all HPA members, and non-member paralegals, legal assistants, paralegal students, and other legal support staff.  Reservations are due no later than 4:00 p.m. on the Friday immediately preceding the event.
