Our Speakers:

Shelly Walker, Paralegal Manager/Regional Office Admin - Polsinelli, PC

Julie Lowrey, Manager of Professional Paralegal Services - Polsinelli, PC

This will be a great CLE for new paralegals entering the field, as well as existing paralegals who need some additional guidance on dealing with their legal workplace and an ongoing pandemic.  What are the ethical implications of working from home versus in person at the office?  This question and many others will be answered during this presentation.

Shelly Walker bio: 

Shelly received her Paralegal Certificate from William Jewell College in 1993.  She joined Polsinelli PC in 1995 as a case assistant managing the docket for the firm.  She completed her bachelor’s degree in Management and Human Relations at Mid America Nazarene University while working at Polsinelli.  Shelly’s docketing position was eventually changed to a paralegal position.  While docketing, she began training with an asbestos defense litigation paralegal, and replaced her when she left the firm.  Shelly handled most aspects of litigation paralegal work including assisting with several trials.  Eventually, she began managing the asbestos paralegal group, which eventually led to her managing the Paralegal Services Department.  She added Regional Office Administrator to her duties in 2018.
