A Step in the Right Direction

In Scotland, paralegals are being given the chance to prove their professionalism and ability. The Scottish Qualifications Authority and the Scottish Paralegal Association have recently launched new qualifications for paralegals. The 10,000 people working in paralegal roles within Scotland's legal system now have an opportunity to work towards one of a number of awards, such as a Higher National Certificate (HNC), a Higher National Diploma (HND), or smaller, specialized Professional Development Awards (PDAs).

In the future, paralegals will be able to register with the Law Society of Scotland, giving them a new professional status.
