Texas Paralegal Day

Texas Paralegal Day Resloution

The State Bar of Texas was the first bar association in the United States to create a separate division for paralegals. The Paralegal Division (formerly known as the Legal Assistants Division) of the State Bar of Texas (the "Division") was created on October 23, 1981. To recognize this day of creation and the paralegals in the State of Texas, the Division approached the Texas Legislature in 2005 to promote the adoption of Texas Paralegal Day. On April 15, 2005, Texas House Resolution No. 865 was signed by the Speaker of the House, Representative Tom Craddick, commending the Division, the paralegals of the State of Texas and resolving that the 79th Legislature of the State of Texas had declared October 23 as Texas Paralegal Day. This date was chosen because that is the day PD (formerly LAD) was created by the State Bar of Texas in 1981. Paralegals across the State celebrate this day in honor of our profession.
