Official Standards and Guidelines for
the Utilization of
Paralegals in Kansas

Prepared as a public service by the Kansas Bar Association.

"Attorneys have a moral and ethical duty to make legal services available to the public at affordable prices. In furtherance of this commitment, the services of paralegals are being utilized by attorneys. Except where prohibited by law or the Rules Relating to Discipline of Attorneys adopted by the Supreme Court of the State of Kansas, which supersede and govern these guidelines, an attorney may utilize the services of a paralegal to assist in the representation of a client as set forth in these guidelines."

 

Developed by the KBA Paralegal Committee, the Official Standards and Guidelines for the Utilization of Paralegals in Kansas helps to define what paralegals and lawyers need to know when it comes to a paralegal. The booklet is available online at http://www.ksbar.org/ParalegalGuidelines. Copies may also be ordered by contacting the KBA at (785) 234-5696.
