This collection of papers focus on the changing role of paralegals in the community and in the legal profession. Issues such as training and accreditation for paralegals, the response of the legal profession, and types of paralegal work are discussed. The debate over the need for increased community access to the legal system, and the role of the paralegal in facilitating this access are examined.
