    The Colorado Supreme Court created the Paraprofessionals and Legal Services Subcommittee (PALS) of its Advisory Committee to study whether licensed paralegals specializing in domestic relations matters could represent 75% of family law litigants who now appear in court without lawyers.

    Speaking as a member of this committee, we plan to send a survey out by March or April asking for feedback on the proposal written to send to the Supreme Court. 

    This month there is a struggle on the title of the legal paraprofessional.  So, I ask if you would respond with the title you prefer the most and your reason why.

    Licensed Legal Paraprofessional

    Colorado Licensed Paralegal

    Licensed Paralegal Technician

    Licensed Paralegal Professional

    I prefer the title Licensed Legal Paraprofessional. I think it is more inclusive since some firms use the term legal assistant and paralegal interchangeably and a personal doesn't necessarily need to be a paralegal (in title) to participate in this program.
