Serif staff are celebrating this morning thanks to a lovely gift from Amanda Hamilton the Chief Executive at National Association of Licenced Paralegals (NALP), a non-profit membership body and the only paralegal body that is recognised as an awarding organisation by Ofqual (the regulator of qualifications in England & Wales). Through its training arm, NALP Training, accredited recognised professional paralegal qualifications are offered for a career as a paralegal professional.
Amanda decided to send the gift to the Serif website development team as a thank you for working so hard to deliver her new Licenced Paralegal Register (LPR) website.
Thank you so much Amanda, we love working with you because you know what you want, yet you are so very open to discussing our ideas. When we are working on your projects we feel part of your business and that makes all the difference.
The LPR website can be used by consumers or employers looking for paralegals, searching by name, location or areas of law. A Paralegal is legally trained and educated to perform legal tasks and offer legal assistance but is not a qualified solicitor. However, a Paralegal can do virtually everything that a solicitor can do except activities that are referred to as: ‘Reserved Activities’ more info on this subject can be found in this useful business crowd article entitled: What is a paralegal and when should your business use one?
