Could You Please Explain These Basic Legal Terms ?
Nov 1st, 2005 at 9:55pm
 
Hi Everyone,

Apologies if this post is in the wrong section. I have come across these terms and I wonder if anyone can provide me with a brief insight into what they mean (I have tried Google and other search engines, but there is no website I know of that provide such definitions) :

-What/who is a Fee Earner (sometimes referred to as Timekeeper) ?? and what do they do in a law firm ??.
-What/who is a Managing Fee Earner ?? and what do they do in a law firm ??.
-What/who is a Secondee ?? and what do they do in a law firm ??.
-What/who is an Associate ?? and what do they do in a law firm ??.
-What/who is a Partner ?? and what do they do in a law firm ??.
-What/who is a Paralegal ?? and what do they do in a law firm ??.
-What does a Matter consist off ?? i.e. what is inside a Matter ??, how is it created and when is it closed ??.

...an explanation of what you understand the above terms to be would be invaluable to me. Perhaps someone would know of any book or some document explaining all of this or some website etc then that would be really helpful also. Thanks in advance.


Kind Regards,
Veronica
