BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, UNITED STATES, December 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Continuing a four-part series of articles, in her newest published article Alabama Family Law Attorney Ayn Traylor-Sadberry discusses the emerging "paraprofessionals." The complete articles will be published on the Blog of Ms. Traylor-Sadberry at https://AynTraylorSadberryBlog.blogspot.com

“Paraprofessionals” such as Licensed Legal Technicians or “Limited License Legal Technicians”

There may be an evolving group of Paralegals that ascend the ranks to act almost like attorneys, similar to Nurse Practitioners who in many cases diagnose and treat health conditions. In civil law cases, there are proposals pending (or already implemented in certain States, as explained below) to address the day-to-day legal need of those unable or unwilling to hire a full-fledged Attorney. This includes the commonplace legal needs of low to moderate-income people by authorizing limited practice by licensed non-lawyers, now known as “paraprofessionals.” This is easy to understand. Many procedures or applications are difficult to understand for “normal” people who are not exposed to them on a daily basis. For example, even forms provided by Courts to make certain filings simpler and possibly enable people to file the forms or applications themselves without the assistance of an Attorney are quite difficult to understand that at least some explanation is still required. This concept has been gradually gaining acceptance. Unlike Paralegals, such paraprofessionals provide services without the direct supervision of an attorney. At this point, two state supreme courts have embraced the “licensed legal technician” concept, and other jurisdictions are closely monitoring its viability.

Given the high percentage of self-represented parties in courtrooms around the country, some advocates believe regulated legal paraprofessionals (charging lower fees) can help narrow the access-to-justice gap. That may one day be the case, but the paraprofessional model and its efficacy in addressing this disparity remain unproven, and ethical rules prevent such a system at least at present.

Washington State pioneered the “limited license” model. In 2013, after years of study, the Washington State Supreme Court adopted the concept of the “Limited License Legal Technician” (LLLT) to perform specific legal services in the area of domestic relations. LLLTs are subject to stringent requirements, which include obtaining an Associate’s degree or higher and completing additional specified coursework; performing 3,000 hours of Paralegal work; passing three law and ethics exams, as well as a character and fitness review. Further, they must also complete a licensing program, satisfy financial responsibility requirements, as well as continuing legal education, and meet malpractice insurance requirements. LLLTs are subject to rules of professional conduct and a disciplinary process similar to those that apply to attorneys. The Board that oversees the LLLT program is now considering expanding the subject matter areas in which paraprofessionals may practice to include consumer debt law.

Several other U.S. States are now following this example. The scope of permissible work for “limited license” paraprofessionals differs under these various models that have been proposed. It generally includes assistance to clients in understanding legal proceedings and completing court forms and other form documents, but does not include appearing for a client in court or at depositions, or taking on complex legal matters. For example, LLLTs in Washington currently may not represent a client in mediated negotiations, but they may do so in Utah.

One of the main reasons for this development is the realization that there is massive need for some form of representation in civil law areas for vast numbers of the population that are attempting self-representation due to limited access to attorneys (mostly due to financial restraints). This is in spite of legal aid societies as well as significant pro bono attorney services. A large number of individuals continue to represent themselves in these areas and could benefit from paraprofessionals.

Ms. Traylor-Sadberry notes that this access-to-justice disparity has prompted State Bars and court systems to promote other forms of nonlawyer assistance to pro se parties, including courthouse navigators and facilitators (examples are Arizona, New York, California, and Washington), and legal document preparers (Arizona, California, and Nevada). Many other States are looking into other forms of permissible assistance (“judicially-authorized-and-regulated legal service providers”) to help address the problem of unmet legal needs.

BRANDON, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, December 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In his newest article, Mayowa F. Odusanya reviews the emerging trend of "paraprofessionals." The complete article will be published on his blog at https://modusanya.blogspot.com/

“Paraprofessionals” such as "Licensed Legal Technicians" or “Limited License Legal Technicians”

There is an evolving strata of Paralegals that ascend the ranks to act almost like attorneys, similar to Nurse Practitioners who in many cases diagnose and treat health conditions. In civil law cases, there are proposals pending (or already implemented in certain States, as explained below) to address the day-to-day legal need of those unable or unwilling to hire a full-fledged Attorney.

This is in spite of legal aid societies as well as significant pro bono attorney services. A large number of individuals continue to represent themselves in these areas and could benefit from paraprofessionals.

This access-to-justice disparity has prompted State Bars and court systems to promote other forms of nonlawyer assistance to pro se parties, including courthouse navigators and facilitators (examples are Arizona, New York, California, and Washington), and legal document preparers (Arizona, California, and Nevada). Many other States are looking into other forms of permissible assistance (“judicially-authorized-and-regulated legal service providers”) to help address the problem of unmet legal needs.

The Paralegal Role in the Legal Profession

Mr. Odusanya notes that, in general, Paralegals are qualified to perform their responsibilities by completing an educational program, receiving training on the job, or through actual work experience. They do not undergo the rigorous training of Attorneys, nor are they licensed like attorneys. Paralegals sometimes perform “legal” work that otherwise would be done by attorneys. However, the supervising Attorneys remain fully responsible for any legal work delegated to a Paralegal and must always supervise the Paralegal’s work. There are several different types of Paralegals, the designation depends upon the required education and training. Examples are:

“Certified Paralegal”

A Certified Paralegal is a Paralegal who has completed the voluntary certification process of a professional association by developing a specified level of professional competency. The various accreditation bodies include: The National Association of Paralegals (NALA) which awards the designation of CP (Certified Paralegal) and CLA (Certified Legal Assistant) to those who meet their specific requirements and complete the competency examination. NALA also governs certain Advanced Specialty Certifications (CLAS) programs, and there also exist certain state-specific advanced competency exams.

“Registered Paralegal”

The National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA) awards the designation Registered Paralegal (RP) to persons who have met its requirements, which requires passing a specific competency examination known as the Paralegal Advanced Competency Exam (PACE).

“Professional Paralegal”

The National Association for Legal Professionals (NALS) awards the Professional Paralegal (PP) certification designation which reflects a proficiency in procedural law, substantive law and an overall commitment to a higher standard of conduct and professionalism. NALS' Professional Paralegals may distinguish themselves further by earning Specialty Certifications in various substantive law areas.

“Backpack Kid” Russell Horning Encourages Support of the Boys and Girls Club of America

Russell Horning Backpack Kid

Russell Horning Backpack Kid

LAWRENCEVILLE, GEORGIA, USA, December 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Internet sensation Russell Horning, known by his creative handle “Backpack Kid,” is a regular volunteer and supporter of community charities. He encourages fans, readers, and all community members to spend a little time giving back and volunteering with programs like the Boys and Girls Club of America.

16-year-old Russell Horning is a dancer at heart, and his Backpack Kid persona is a viral internet sensation because of it. His self-choreographed “flossing” moves are performed around the world and have been integrated into pop culture through video game references and SNL performances. He has a loyal internet following and fans in high places, as mega pop-stars Rihanna and Katy Perry will let you know.

Beyond his love for dance, Russell Horning also has a passion for giving back to his community. He’s made appearances at elementary schools with donations of backpacks full of supplies, giving an impromptu performance alongside the kids. He’s appeared at Zumba events and celebrity video game tournaments, and even surprised a teen this year at her prom.

Backpack Kid is also an ongoing supporter of the Boys and Girls Club of America, whose mission is to “enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.”

“I share a lot of the same values as the Boys and Girls Club of America,” says Russell Horning. “I want kids to be nice to each other and respect each other and achieve their dreams. I think they’ll grow up to be good people that way.”

The Club has had an impact in the lives of youth since as far back as the 1860s, proving to be one of the longest-running charitable organizations in operation today. It began with the vision to provide a world-class Club Experience that ensures all youth are on track to graduate school and have a plan for their future. It also helps young people develop good character along the way and develop habits of a healthy lifestyle.

Today, the Boys and Girls Club of America impacts the lives of more than 4 million kids and teens with the hopes to eventually reach more than double that number. Its broad reach is in thanks to diverse program offerings, supporting subjects like education, sports, career development, the arts, wellness, and leadership.

Volunteers are extensions of the hopeful environment the Club creates for youth. They help kids with homework, coach sports games, do crafts, teach art projects, and act as mentors. Through their assistance, the Club is able to build healthy relationships with young people and have a positive impact in the lives of our communities’ future leaders.

Russell Horning, who uses his Backpack Kid fame to spread togetherness and respect, hopes that he can inspire more people to volunteer with the Club.

“When you help these kids, you help yourself,” Russell Horning says. “Everybody is a little better off.”

Micah Raskin Wants Everyone to Give Back

Micah Raskin

Micah Raskin

Micah Raskin thinks there is a better way to do business and it involves giving back to those who need it most.

NASSAU COUNTY, NEW YORK, USA, December 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Born in New York, Micah was raised in a musically talented family, playing in bands with his brothers throughout high school. He graduated from Baruch College with a Bachelor’s degree in business administration and began a career that would take him around the world and back. Having seen the world, Micah has learned to live a life of joy by waking up every day passionate about every moment in front of him.

“Choosing happiness in both work and my personal life was the greatest lesson I have ever learned,” explained Micah Raskin. “It’s been the constant throughout my entire life. I help businesses every day realize that their employees will be much happier if they have a sense of purpose in their lives, and often times it starts right at work.”

Micah Raskin challenges everyone he meets to find their passion. This is the ultimate baseline for everything you will do in your life, and when a business or person starts to think about giving back, they have a greater sense of purpose by doing it with passion. Everyone should feel empowered to chase their dreams, and in doing so, you’ll open your heart up to a world of giving you didn’t know existed.

Micah Raskin also reminds businesses to encourage their employees to give their time, not just their pocketbooks.

“Showing up and serving people in person is a life-changing experience that provides you with a deeper sense of purpose,” explains Micah Raskin. “I can’t overstate the importance of giving your time to those who need it the most.”

Over the decades Micah Raskin has partnered with a number of great charities and even started his own, and he often reminds businesses just how important it is to find reputable organizations to give your time and money to. It’s important to find charities that have a vision for the future, like Charity Water. This ensures that your efforts are going to actually help those who need it most.

Whether volunteering at the local soup kitchen, or shelter, Micah Raskin encourages everyone to take the leap of serving, and there is no greater time to start than the holidays.

When Micah Raskin isn’t working with charities, you can find him coaching businesses and touring the world playing poker. To learn more, click here.

The John Marshall Law School’s International Human Rights Clinic Ramps Up Outreach Efforts with New Fellow

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Alejandra Palacios, a 2018 graduate of The John Marshall Law School in Chicago, has joined the law school’s International Human Rights Clinic as an Illinois Bar Foundation Fellow. In this position, Palacios will assist in the Clinic’s outreach projects.

Under Palacios’s leadership, the Clinic has hosted two community outreach events, the first in Chicago and the second in Waukegan, Illinois. At the events, Palacios and John Marshall clinic students hosted an informational workshop on applying for asylum. The workshop is conducted in multiple languages, depending on the audience.

“The goal of the events is to provide easier access to justice for various communities,” Palacios said. “I believe by hosting workshops, providing legal information in different languages and making sure people are aware of the services available to them at the IHRC, we will continue to see success. We may not always have all of the answers but we are able to point people in the right direction.”

John Marshall’s International Human Rights Clinic promotes human rights domestically and around the world by providing direct legal representation to clients and organizations in international and domestic forums; documenting human rights violations in the United States and abroad; collaborating with other human rights organizations on cases and projects; and publishing and presenting reports, papers and other materials related to human rights. The Clinic offers law students a background in human rights advocacy through the practical experience of working on international human rights cases and projects.

In January 2016, the Clinic launched its first asylum-based project, the Human Rights for Syrians Initiative. The Initiative established a network of advocates, attorneys and service providers in the United States to support Syrian refugees and asylum seekers.

“Asylum work is more important now than ever,” Sarah Davila-Ruhaak, Director of John Marshall’s Clinic said. “Protecting human rights at home is imperative. We need to act locally and globally. Everything that we do connects to a broad vision of human rights.”

About the Illinois Bar Foundation Post-Graduate Legal Fellowship
Recognizing the vast unmet civil legal needs of low-income residents of the State of Illinois and understanding that these needs are best served when addressed by a trained attorney, the Board of Directors of the Illinois Bar Foundation have begun funding year-long post-graduate legal fellowships in partnership with law schools operating civil legal aid clinics in the State of Illinois. The IBF and the law schools share the cost of each fellowship, which is awarded annually. Fellowships are awarded to qualifying graduates who work in their alma mater’s civil legal aid clinic.

About The John Marshall Law School
The John Marshall Law School, founded in 1899, is an independent law school located in the heart of Chicago's legal, financial and commercial districts. The 2019 U.S. News & World Report's America's Best Graduate Schools ranks John Marshall's Lawyering Skills Program 6th, its Intellectual Property Law Program 15th and its Trial Advocacy Program 20th in the nation. Since its inception, John Marshall has been a pioneer in legal education and has been guided by a tradition of diversity, innovation, access and opportunity.

Marriage to a U.S. citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident is one of the most common forms of family-based immigration, explains Magda Cuprys

Cuprys & Associates (N/A:N/A)

Getting married to a United States Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident is one of the most common forms of Family-Based Immigration into the USA, and it is also one of the fastest ways”

— Magdalena Cuprys, Immigration Lawyer

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a published article in her Instruction Series, Immigration Attorney Magdalena Cuprys, Florida, provides an overview of one of the most common forms of Family-Based Immigration. The complete review will be published on her Blog at https://magdalenacuprysblog.blogspot.com/

Getting married to a United States Citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident (Green Card Holder) is one of the most common forms of Family-Based Immigration into the USA, and it is also one of the fastest ways to obtain Lawful Permanent Residence (i.e., a Green Card).

In order to obtain full Lawful Permanent Residence Status based on such marriage, the couple must have been married for at least 2 years prior to the filing of the Application for Lawful Permanent Residence (I-130) in order for the foreign spouse to obtain their green card. Otherwise, the foreign spouse will only be granted temporary Conditional Residence for a duration of 2 years. After this 2-year period, the couple must file an additional application to apply to have the Conditional Residence status removed (I-751), and once this application is approved by USCIS, only then does the foreign spouse becomes eligible to receive the full, permanent, green card status.

However, in reality, many individuals apply for Lawful Permanent Residence when they have been married for
less than 2 years. In such a case, one has a more complex burden of proof for the application process, as one must demonstrate through documentary evidence that the marriage is real, was entered into in good faith, and is bona fide in nature (i.e. that it was not entered into fraudulently for the purpose of evading US Immigration Laws).

Convincing evidence is critical at this juncture, and it is highly recommended that one utilize a qualified Immigration Attorney to assist in the collection, presentation and submission of such evidence to USCIS. Common examples of such evidence are correspondence between the spouses, be they letters, emails, social media conversations; photographs of the couple together; and affidavits from family, friends, co-workers, etc. Evidence of financial ties together should also be gathered, such as copies of joint bank accounts, credit cards, insurance policies, health insurance, automobile titles, auto insurance policies, joint bills, tax returns, and mail which shows that both spouses live at the same address together. Anything which demonstrates a legitimate relationship that has been continuous and on-going is beneficial, notes Ms. Cuprys.

After one applies for the green card, it is thereafter required that both spouses will have to appear in person at their local USCIS Office for an Official USCIS Interview. The immigration officer will interview the couple and ask them many personal questions in order to determine that the marriage is real and bona fide, i.e. questions of each spouse to ascertain and verify if they know things about the other, etc. These are such things that a married person should know about their relationship.

There also is a financial component to the Immigration process. The US Citizen (sponsoring spouse) has to attest and agree to provide financial support to the foreign spouse. This is done via the execution of a formal Affidavit of Support, which is a legal requirement in the process and must be included with the original Application for Lawful Permanent Residence at time of filing. Also, the sponsoring spouse must prove that they are financially capable and responsible, in which they must document and submit evidence that he or she is employed and has a salary that must meet at least 125% above the Federal Poverty Line (US Income Requirements). It is also required that
they provide Federal Income Tax Returns for the past 3 years as evidence of the above.

the Second Circuit’s decision in the American Express case, which applied the same reasoning later upheld by the Supreme Court, was the basis for Atrium Health’s supplemental arguments”

— K. Todd Wallace, Attorney in New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — New Orleans attorney K. Todd Wallace published a comment on the recent U.S. Department of Justice settlement with Atrium Health. The settlement was announced by the Justice Department when submitting the proposed settlement for court approval in a case that has been ongoing since 2016. At issue in the case was Atrium Health’s use of anti-steering provision in its contracts with health insurance companies. As explained by the DOJ in its press release announcing the settlement, “[t]he Department alleged that Atrium, the dominant hospital system in the Charlotte area, used its market power to restrict health insurers from encouraging consumers to choose healthcare providers that offer better overall value. The restrictions also constrained insurers from providing consumers and employers with information regarding the cost and quality of alternative health benefit plans.” If approved, the settlement would enjoin Atrium Health from seeking to enforce the anti-steering provision against health insurers and also prohibit including such provision in its contract with insurers in the future.

Mr. Wallace notes that the settlement represents an interesting development in light of the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision in Ohio v. American Express. In the American Express case, the Supreme Court held that anti-steering provision in a two sided-market must be evaluated as a whole. Many legal scholars saw this development as potentially having significant effect on the analysis of how other multiparty-market antitrust cases would be evaluated, such as those involving the health insurance industry.

Interestingly, the Second Circuit’s decision in the American Express case, which applied the same reasoning later upheld by the Supreme Court, was the basis for Atrium Health’s supplemental arguments in its 12(c) Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings. In their opposition, the DOJ argued that American Express was wrongly decided by the Second Circuit, a position that would ultimately be rejected by the Supreme Court. But more importantly, the DOJ argued that the anti-steering provision at issue harms both the patients and insurers. The DOJ argued in their opposition briefing that “Plaintiffs also have alleged actual anticompetitive effects on price and output for patients and the insurers who pay for their health care. In Paragraph 14 of the Complaint, Plaintiffs allege that when insurers have steered in spite of CHS’s restrictions, consumers have paid less for health care. And in Paragraph 27 of the Complaint, Plaintiffs allege that ‘[a]s a result of this reduced competition due to CHS’s steering restrictions, individuals and employers in the Charlotte area pay higher prices’ and have less product choice. These are allegations of actual ongoing harm: CHS’s steering restrictions result in Charlotte consumers paying more for health care.”

It appears that the DOJ satisfied the whole market approach as required by American Express, at least at the initial pleading stage. Although one can only speculate as to what ultimately motivated the parties to settle, it would be reasonable to assume that the dual harm alleged by the DOJ could have played a factor the decision rather than pursue its 12(c) motion to the end.

Reading Roadmap afterschool tutoring model increases student test scores

Program demonstrates how afterschool can impact early childhood literacy

Using school data to target student needs and achieve improvement based on school assessments is the best way to impact state and national assessments.”

— Andrew Hysell, Reading Roadmap Executive Director

TOPEKA, KANSAS, UNITED STATES, December 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — New research demonstrates that the Kansas Reading Roadmap is a promising model for how schools and nonprofits can leverage afterschool programs to improve students’ early reading proficiency.

An in-depth look at the accomplishments of KRR from the 2017-18 school year is now available on the program’s website. KRR summarized the detailed analysis in an evaluation brief.

The report states 5,000 attendees of the Reading Roadmap afterschool programs across 61 sites demonstrated dramatic improvement on school-administered assessments over the course of the past school year. Based upon three separate school-administered assessments, KRR schools experienced 50 percent higher grade-level reading growth school-wide compared to a control group of similar schools.

On average, by the end of the school year, students attending the afterschool program were five times more likely to be grade-level readers than their peers. Furthermore, children attending afterschool were two times less likely to be categorized as needing intensive intervention services.

What is particularly notable about the reading improvement was that it was observed across three different commercial universal screeners—AIMSWeb, DIBELS and FastBridge. These screeners are used by schools around the country to measure grade-level reading and are supported by significant research.

“A core tenant of the Reading Roadmap is that the only test that matters is the school’s test,” said Andrew Hysell, Executive Director of the Reading Roadmap. “Using school data to target student needs and achieve improvement based on school assessments is the best way to impact state and national assessments.”

Policymakers, educators, and parents look to measures like state assessments and the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) to measure how well students are reading.

The Reading Roadmap provides a comprehensive literacy solution designed for an afterschool environment. It includes a variety of interventions that target the five pillars of literacy including the foundational skills of phonemic awareness and phonics, as well as fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.

The Reading Roadmap aligns this comprehensive, skills-based approach with partner school data through a system called the Kansas Multi-Tier System of Supports and Alignment (Kansas MTSS). Schools that use Kansas MTSS inform their afterschool programs with the data necessary to provide personalized interventions for striving readers. The synergy of school and out-of-school alignment is the secret to the model’s success at improving reading for all students.

KRR is a partnership between local schools, the Kansas Technical Assistance System Network (TASN), and DCF. Launched in 2013, KRR features summer and family engagement components that complement its afterschool efforts. The organization has made its specially designed afterschool and family engagement curricula available to schools who wish to employ it.

The KRR 2017-18 Annual Report provides a comprehensive statistical data summary of the progress made by students involved with KRR. The full report can be viewed online on the organization’s website.

Last year, KRR provided more than:

• 945,000 hours of free childcare
• 590,000 hours of out-of-school learning opportunities
• 13,900 hours of training to 420 school district employees
• 1,300 part- and full-time employment opportunities
