Law firms and legal departments are cutting costs and increasing access to legal services by hiring paralegals. The paralegal phenomenon is a legal-economics argument in all jurisdictions and they exist precisely because they are not lawyers and thus can do the work much more cost effectively. There are many legal tasks for which a bar license is unnecessary but legal training is necessary. In order to lower costs, businesses may choose to employ paralegals to undertake such tasks instead of a more expensive lawyer. OC Legal Source time is typically billed out at only a fraction of what a lawyer charges, and thus to the paralegal has fallen those substantive and procedural tasks which are too complex for legal secretaries whose time is not billed, but for which lawyers can no longer bill. This in turn makes lawyers more efficient by allowing them to concentrate solely on the substantive legal issues of the case, while paralegals have become the “case managers.”
