Florida Bar Makes it Easier for Grandfathered FRP to Reapply After Lapse/Revocation
The Florida Bar sent out an email this morning containing information of upcoming rule changes for FRPs, one of those rules is:
Rule 20-3.1(c), Grandfathering Reapplication. A paralegal who was registered under the grandfathering provision on or prior to March 1, 2011, who resigns or whose registration is revoked may reapply based on work experience alone.
I’m really excited about this because it means that someone who was previously grandfathered in and who for some reason has to reapply (not RENEW), they don’t need a formal education to do so… yay!
**Please keep in mind – this is for REAPPLICATION for paralegals who applied under the grandfathering rules prior to March 1, 2011 – if you did not previously apply, you would be required to meet the regular requirements**
