A Career as a Paralegal

A paralegal or legal assistant is a person - qualified through education, training or work experience - who is employed or retained by a lawyer, law office, governmental agency or other entity. The paralegal performs specifically delegated, substantive legal work for which a lawyer is responsible. Paralegals must not provide legal services directly to the public except as permitted by law.
