IAALS, the Institute for the Advancement of the American Legal System at the University of Denver, announced today that it released its new Allied Legal Professionals landscape report, along with an accompanying online Knowledge Centre.

The accompanying online Knowledge Centre is designed to be an up-to-date resource with current state information for those considering how these programs can be achieved and improved upon.
