Classify Paralegals as Professionals, Not Administrative Staff

Rees Morrison notes in his blog, Law Department Management, that if you classify paralegals as professionals, not administrative staff, you pay for appropriate quality. I'd go one step further and classify the junior level paralegals as professionals, too. After all, more paralegals are entering the field with paralegal degrees. With the inevitable regulation of paralegals, an administrative staff salary will not make the profession financially rewarding for intelligent, hardworking paralegals. And remember, you get what you pay for!
