The National Association for Legal Assistants (NALA) recently held their 40th Annual Convention, Institutes, and Exhibition in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The conference offered educational programs for CLE credits applicable to many paralegal associations nationwide. Legal Talk Network host Vicki Voisin attended and interviewed instructors from some of the CLE “institutes.”
In this podcast, Voisin interviews Stacey Bowers, professor at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, about corporate law and commercial law for paralegals. They discuss Bowers’ seminar, Corporate Institute, in which she covered corporate entities, understanding financial statements, corporate drafting skills, ethical considerations in corporate law, and more. Although paralegals can be generalist, Bowers explains, they can add value by becoming an expert on a specific subject.
Stacey Bowers was an instructor on the Corporate Institute at the NALA annual convention for the second year in a row. She is also a member of the NALA Certifying Board. She is a professor at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law where she teaches in the corporate commercial program.
