Benefits of becoming a Paralegal
With 17% growth projected in the paralegal industry, and law firms increasingly depending on paralegals, becoming a paralegal means great job security.
Paralegals perform a wide range of functions including legal research, interviewing witnesses, drafting legal documents, and even attending hearings with attorneys.
In addition to government agencies and corporate legal departments, paralegals work in many types of law — including immigration law, criminal law, contract law, and environmental law.
