Since it began in the 1960s, the paralegal profession has evolved into much more than a step to law school. Paralegals continue to assume more comprehensive roles in providing legal services to clients by performing a wide range of tasks that contribute to cost-effective, high-quality legal services for clients. The professional relationship between an attorney and a paralegal can be an asset to a company of any size.
The purpose of the Paralegal Section is to promote the objectives of the Gate City Bar Association within the paralegal field. I encourage all paralegals interested in the issues of the paralegal profession throughout Georgia to meet, confer and help us promote the paralegal procession; We provide a communications network, promote the legal education of our member through the sponsoring of meetings, symposiums and conferences and by organizing opportunities for professional growth within the paralegal field.
The goals of the Paralegal Section are to establish good fellowship among its members and members of the legal community; to encourage a higher order of ethical and professional attainment; to further education and training among members of the profession; and to cooperate and foster working relationships with bar associations and other professional organizations.”

Message from Dorothy Kirk, Chair of the GCBA Paralegal Section Executive Committee
I am honored to serve as the 2017 Chair of the Gate City Bar Association Paralegal Section Executive Committee. Having been involved with GCBA Paralegal Section in various leadership roles and board positions over the past several years, I am excited to take on this new responsibility. My fellow Board members and I anticipate leading the organization in continuing the long standing traditions of CLE's, student scholarships, job search and professional networking.
As Chair, my focus will be to foster the professional development of paralegals and maintain a high order of ethical and professional standards, while mentoring those aspiring to become paralegals. As the paralegal profession continues to change, we must take an active part in shaping that change. I am excited to work with our members and the legal community to carry out the association’s mission statement and to support the effective utilization of paralegals.
As the 2017 Chair of the Paralegal Section, I encourage all members to get involved, by attending our educational CLE’s, networking with colleagues, or volunteering for a community service project.
