The task force will review and update NYSBA’s 1997
guidelines for the use of paralegals. This task force will explore relevant
ethics considerations, confidentiality, privilege, supervision, and will make
recommendations for best practices in light of relevant ethics opinions and
other developments in the context of the modern 21st century law office and in
the virtual law office.
It will also explore the possibility of some form of NYSBA
membership for paralegals. Committee Roster
