SURVEY REQUEST

One of the recent agenda topics that was brought to NFPA’s annual convention was relating the definition of a paralegal and wanting to be consistent with the term/definition of Paralegal. The NFPA delegates approved the agenda topic and the NFPA Board sent a letter to the ABA requesting that they remove the term “legal assistant” from their definition of “paralegal”. In response the ABA stated they would send around a survey asking paralegals, educators, attorneys, etc., their preferred term. Based on the results of that survey, the ABA would bring this matter up for a vote with their Board of Governors. True to their word, the ABA has sent out the following survey this week, which is open until March 15th. NFPA has asked PANH to forward the survey to our members, requesting they participate in this survey. The survey will only take a few minutes to respond. Your response would be much appreciated !
