Following on from the success of the inaugural awards in 2019, The National Paralegal Awards focuses solely on the work and achievements of Paralegals, whether they are employed, self-employed, a volunteer or a business, as well as companies that support the profession. The categories chosen reflect the diversity of a Paralegal's role within the legal sector, and the services they provide.
