Texas Paralegal Day 2010

Posted by PD Membership on October 20, 2010

TX Paralegal Day SealTEXAS PARALEGAL DAY  –  OCTOBER 23, 2010

The State Bar of Texas was the first bar association in the United States to create a separate division for paralegals.  The Paralegal Division of the State Bar of Texas (the “Division”) was created on October 23, 1981, and has been in existence for 29 years.

In honor of the many contributions made by the paralegal community and the Paralegal Division, the Senate of the State of Texas adopted Proclamation No. 1144, recognizing October 23rd as Texas Paralegal Day.
