DEFINITION OF A LEGAL ASSISTANT
A legal assistant (also known as a paralegal) is a person, qualified through education, training, or work experience, who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, governmental agency, or other entity in a capacity or function which involves the performance, under the ultimate direction or supervision of an attorney, of specifically delegated substantive legal work, which work, for the most part, requires sufficient knowledge of legal concepts that, absent such an assistant, the attorney would perform the task.

Adopted November 11, 1994, Board of Governors of the State Bar of Nevada
