The quality of paralegal case data is a constant challenge on the ground - especially when case forms or other report templates include many detailed sections.
Have any organizations developed a written guide that defines everything on your case data collection form - a reference to help all paralegals and supervisors interpret the sections and options in the exact same way, and to complement extensive training on data collection?
If so, please use this thread to share examples of these “paralegal data collection guides” or any related tips on how best to structure such a reference tool! For example, if the document is too long it may not be used by the paralegals. On the other hand, if it’s too brief, it may not be useful enough to improve data quality. Where have you found a balance?
Looking forward to hearing your insights!
