Sponsorship Form (PDF)

Since it began in the 1960s, the paralegal profession has evolved into much more than a step to law school. Paralegals continue to assume more comprehensive roles in providing legal services to clients by performing a wide range of tasks that contribute to cost-effective, high-quality legal services for clients. The professional relationship between an attorney and a paralegal can be an asset to a company of any size.

The purpose of the Paralegal Section is to promote the objectives of the Gate City Bar Association within the paralegal field. I encourage all paralegals interested in the issues of the paralegal profession throughout Georgia to meet, confer and help us promote the paralegal procession; We provide a communications network, promote the legal education of our member through the sponsoring of meetings, symposiums and conferences and by organizing opportunities for professional growth within the paralegal field.

The goals of the Paralegal Section are to establish good fellowship among its members and members of the legal community; to encourage a higher order of ethical and professional attainment; to further education and training among members of the profession; and to cooperate and foster working relationships with bar associations and other professional organizations.”

Message from the Chair…

I am honored to be elected and recognized by my peers to serving as the 2014 Chair of the Paralegal Section. Thank you for your confidence and commitment to the paralegal profession. I will continue to be the best advocate I can be in representing you and the Gate City Bar Association. My hope is to grow and learn to become better leader while helping others to do the same. The section is only as strong as its members, and lucky for us, there are many great members and leaders within Gate City Bar Association to help us on this journey. We have an exciting year planned for 2014, relevant to four core areas of achievement, which are to engage, to inspire, to enhance and to promote the paralegal profession. This will enable our members to build a strong professional relationship within the association and our legal community.

The goals and objectives of the section for 2014 are to:

  • Expand membership and business partnerships to foster positive relations and to promote the professional role of the paralegal;

  • Provide opportunities for paralegals to grow and develop professional skills; thereby becoming an integral partner with both the legal community and community at large;

  • Participate and assist in activities providing pro bono services to the community;

  • Mentor those entering the paralegal profession; through our newly created Student Ambassador program that will support established paralegals through educational programs that enhance the profession; and

  • Continue to support the mission of the Gate City Bar Association.

I am asking each of you for your assistance individually and collectively in helping the Paralegal Section achieve these goals. We will need your time, expertise, participation and support of our programs such as providing internships, our annual C.O.R.E. - Career Opportunities Resources and Education and Annual Skills Symposium. These events all engage, inspire, enhance and promote our growth in the paralegal profession. With your help, we will succeed and grow into a more powerful organization. The Paralegal Section Board has pledged to make sure that every experience exceeds your highest expectation.

I look forward to serving you as the 2014 Paralegal Section Chair. Where ever your life’s journey takes you I challenge you to engage, inspire, enhance and promote positive growth in order to make an impact on the life of each person you meet.

Thank You

Koren Saddler Conrad
