productivity? Then this is the article for you!
and the Paralegal: If It Doesn’t Seem Right, Don’t Do It!
by Nancy C. McLaughlin, CLAS
Your credentials may be impeccable, your skills first rate, your
responsibilities enormous. But if you practice unethical conduct,
knowingly or unknowingly, you are a danger not only to the client,
your attorney and the firm, but also to yourself.

CALLING ALL LAD MEMBERS!
Everyone likes to see their name in print...well...almost
everyone! If you would like to see your’s, all you have to do is
submit an article to The Texas Paralegal Journal. It doesn’t have to
be a tome—it can be as short as one-half page. Or if you have more
to say, you can take up to five (5) single-spaced, typewritten pages.
If you need ideas, take a look at the following suggestion:
Criminal Law: Concealed Handgun Law;
Pre-Litigation: Subrogation, Interview Techniques, Obtaining a Proper
Litigation: Trial Notebooks, Organization of Complex Document
Production, Use of Databases, "On-the-Road" (working on a
case out of your immediate area-what you need to know);
Maritime and Admiralty
Medical Malpractice (including the role of the nurse/paralegal); Real Estate;
Entertainment and Intellectual Property;
Non-Traditional Roles for Legal Assistants;
These are only a few ideas for
potential articles. If you feel you don’t have anything to
contribute, you probably know someone who does. Either contact them
directly, or let us know their information and we will track them
down. We are also looking for suggestions for
"Paralegal Pointers" "Law & Disorder" and our
"Web Wizards" columns. Also welcome are your comments and
criticisms of our publications and website.
To share your ideas or submit an
article, please contact:
Norma Hackler, Coorinator
Legal Assistants Division

WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU!
