THE PARALEGAL PROFESSION
Paralegals, also called legal assistants, work with lawyers in a wide range of professional settings and perform tasks that include legal research, legal writing and document preparation, information gathering, litigation support, legal technology support and office management. Employment opportunities are available for paralegals in law firms, corporations, courts and government agencies, businesses, real estate and banking.
Paralegals shall not engage in the unauthorized practice of law as proscribed by Kentucky law and the Supreme Court Rules (SCR 3.130 [5.5]) and must be appropriately supervised by a lawyer to ensure the paralegal's conduct is compatible with the professional and ethical standards of the practice (SCR 3.130 (5.3]).
