August Message from The President
SHORTAGE OF LAW OFFICE SUPPORT STAFF
The post pandemic labor issues have hit the legal profession just like other sectors of the economy. Securing support staff for law offices has become increasingly more difficult, if not impossible. Many local law offices have available positions which they are simply unable to fill.
Trained legal secretaries, legal assistants and paralegals are at an absolute premium. It would appear that local colleges and universities are simply not focusing on training students to fill jobs in law offices.
Perhaps it would be appropriate for the Bar to approach local institutions of higher learning to educate them on the many opportunities for employment in local law offices. Keeping young talent locally serves everyone's best interest.
Very truly yours,
Keith A. Eisenhut, Esq., President, Oneida County Bar Association
