What is a Paralegal?

Paralegals and legal assistants provide support to lawyers and maintain the legal office. Specific duties vary, but these may include organizing files, conducting legal research and drafting documents. They also help lawyers prepare for trials, hearings or corporate meetings.

In large organizations, paralegals may also be in charge of handling a particular phase of a case. For instance, the paralegal may conduct the research for lawyers or handle and organize evidence for the hearings.

According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, paralegals earn a median salary of $46,990 annually. The job market is expected to grow until 2022. This occupation attracts many applicants and the job market is competitive. Experienced paralegals and formally trained paralegals have the strongest job prospects.
