Idaho State Bar Association 

In 1994, IAP worked successfully with the Idaho State Bar Association in adopting the American Bar Association’s definition of a paralegal and model utilization guidelines (ISB Deskbook). The ABA defines a paralegal as:

 A person qualified by education, training or work experience, who is employed or

 retained by a lawyer, law office, governmental agency, or other entity and who performs

 specifically delegated substantive legal work for which a lawyer is responsible.
