What is a Paralegal?

NALA has accepted the American Bar Association definition of a legal assistant/paralegal. The current ABA Definition of Legal Assistant/Paralegal is:

“. . .  a person, qualified by education, training or work experience who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, corporation, governmental agency or other entity and who performs specifically delegated substantive legal work for which a lawyer is responsible. . .”

The term paralegal is customarily used in Ohio.
