PD Member – Pro Bono Survey

Posted by PD Membership on August 25, 2011

The Paralegal Division is focusing on Pro Bono service this year and wanted to know how our members were involved with the communities where they live and work.  A recent survey of PD members showed that approximately 30% of the membership is involved in Pro Bono paralegal work and 70% of you do other types of volunteer work in your community. This is fantastic! We are glad to hear that so many people are giving back.

We collected suggestions for future Pro Bono projects – keep your eye on the Pro Bono listings at www.txpd.org for options in your area.

Survey respondents were entered to win one of five gift cards valuing $10. The following PD members have been randomly selected and notified via email. Congratulations to:

  • Meredith S.
  • Cindi P.
  • Sharon B.
  • Amy F.
  • JoAnn M.

The PD would like to thank the following Sustaining
members for their support in sponsoring this survey:

Thank you to our Paralegal Day Sponsors!

Posted by Texas Paralegal Division Blogger at blog@txpd.org on November 18, 2009

On October 23, 1981, the State Bar of Texas became the first bar association in the United States to create a separate division for paralegals. Recognizing the importance of paralegal professionals in the legal community, beginning in 2005, during each session, the Texas House of Representatives signed proclamations acknowledging October 23rd as “Paralegal Day” (in recognition of the anniversary of the founding of the Paralegal Division), for one or two years at a time. However on January 22, 2009, the Texas Senate issued Proclamation No. 1144, declaring October 23rd to be Texas Paralegal Day indefinitely.

Proclamation No. 1144 states, in part, that “Paralegals are vital resources to their firms, performing valuable services for and under the direction of an attorney, and their work requires a thorough knowledge of legal concepts and facts. October 23 marks the anniversary of the founding of the Paralegal Division of the State Bar of Texas, a division established to promote high standards of conduct, professional ethics, and responsibility through continuing legal education and cooperation with the State Bar of Texas. The goals of the Paralegal Division are to achieve more economical and improved legal services throughout the state, to focus on benefits for its members and the paralegal profession, and to develop opportunities, incentives, and recognition for legal education. Through their exceptional talents and expertise, paralegals provide valuable services that contribute significantly to the efficient functioning of the judicial system in the Lone Star State and they are indeed worthy of special recognition.
