Karla Eckardt, a Miami native, moved to Tallahassee to pursue a bachelor’s degree in international affairs and criminology from Florida State University. Karla was a paralegal turned legal administrator at an area firm. She fully expected that her time at the firm would inspire her to attend law school. However, she soon realized that her professional skills and goals drove her towards a career in legal administration, not the substantive practice of law. Rather than going to law school, she has decided to pursue a juris master’s degree with a concentration in legal risk management and HR compliance. Karla is currently a Practice Management Advisor in The Florida Bar’s Practice Resource Institute.
