All professionals must adhere to a set of ethical standards in order to do what is in the best interest of those whom they serve and to ensure that they adhere to basic tenets of operating withing that profession. Paralegals are no an exception but unless they belong to a paralegal association or are certified they may not be aware of these ethical standards.  The Generally Accepted Paralegal Principles seek to bridge this gap and to provide a uniform set of ethical standards for all paralegals to adhere to whether they belong to a paralegal association or not.

Intro to (G.A.P.P.) Generally Accepted Paralegal Principles

In order to avoid the unauthorized practice of law and to ensure that the ethical rules of their  managing attorneys are not breached paralegals must be aware of ways to communicate effectively and ethically.
