Licensed Legal Paraprofessionals (LLP)

Colorado currently does not license paralegals or other legal paraprofessionals, but that could change in the near future. After approving a preliminary report recommending that Licensed Legal Paraprofessionals (LLPs) be allowed to provide limited legal services in certain types of domestic relations cases, the Colorado Supreme Court has requested that its Advisory Committee develop an implementation plan. Given that some 75% of litigants in domestic relations cases have no legal representation (“pro se”), LLPs could help fill the gap in representation, and would be allowed to assist clients directly in lower-asset marital dissolution, parentage, and allocation of parental responsibility (APR) cases. Other jurisdictions, including Utah, Arizona and Washington, already have similar programs to license paralegals or legal paraprofessionals with enhanced skills in limited legal practice areas.

Speakers include:

Maha Kamal, Amy Goscha, Colleen McManamon and Laura Landon
