You'll know what your attorneys need before they ask for it. Your attorneys will think you're the rockstar paralegal who can read their minds!
This low-tech method doesn't require expensive case management software and it will allow you to be the master of information on all of your litigation cases.
Ann Pearson is the Founder of the Paralegal Boot Camp®. Ann develops training programs exclusively for paralegals and other legal professionals who work under the supervision of attorneys.
I remember nearly 30 years ago starting my new paralegal position and in those early days, literally sitting at my desk asking "what am I supposed to be doing?!" I learned all about the rules of civil procedure and how to do legal research in school, but now I'm on the job and I don't know what to do.
And it turned out that I wasn't alone! It wasn't the school that failed me. All paralegal graduates start their career with the book knowledge, but not the actual skills needed to be successful.
That's what motivated me to start my own company in 2010. To help paralegals with courses that add immediate value to their careers. We don't fill file cabinets with CLE certificates of completion. Instead, we add skills that help paralegals in the real work that they do.
