National Paralegal Day is October 23, a day that honors the work of paralegals and legal assistants in law offices throughout the United States.

Why does it matter to you?

You need paralegals.

And you should create a social media post thanking your paralegals as well as do something internally to show your gratitude.

Appreciation equals motivation.

It shows paralegals that their roles as assistants, researchers and interviewers all matter, and the work doesn’t go unnoticed. Appreciation promotes better work.

So what are you going to do for National Paralegal Day to celebrate those who do the legal research (and mountains of paperwork) that enables your firm to function?

You can easily create an image in Canva like I did here and use the hashtag below.

Here is some sample text you can use (please customize it).

October 23 is #NationalParalegalDay – a day to celebrate all of our hardworking paralegals who help us ensure that every client’s interaction with our firm exceeds expectations. Thank you today and every day!

Remember treat your paralegals (and all employees) well every day of the year. Not just on a hashtag holiday.
