ABA Model Guidelines for the Utilization of Paralegal Services

The Standing Committee on Paralegals of the American Bar Association drafted, and the ABA House of Delegates adopted, the ABA Model Guidelines for the Utilization of Legal Assistant Services in 1991, with a 2003 revision now titled ABA Model Guidelines for the Utilization of Paralegal Services.  Most states have also prepared or adopted state-specific recommendations or guidelines for the utilization of services provided by paralegals.   All of these recommendations or guidelines are intended to provide lawyers with useful and authoritative guidance in working with paralegals.
