In times of great uncertainty, I think it is imperative that we keep ‘talking’ albeit via blogs, e mails, facetime or any means that we have available to us. Many will feel isolated and the feeling of helplessness or despair can creep up on us at any time. Work for most people is not only a necessity financially but often mentally as it provides purpose, mental stimulation and of course social interaction.
We all need to keep going and do the things we always did but to try and find new ways of doing them. This is never truer than continuing to meet clients needs in whatever area of law we may be working in. We have published "5 Tips on Taking Instructions Remotely", that we hope will be useful and we are reminding members that they have access to LawCare should they need to talk about anything that is worrying them.
I am extremely lucky to have a brilliant team at the IoP who all are here to help you as paralegals, wherever we can. Please interact with us and let us know if there is anything we can do to assist you as we value our members support very much.
