Here at the Quality Paralegals website we are here to help you fulfil your dream of a career in law. We know full well that the path to becoming a fully-fledged lawyer is a long and arduous one, and can require a minimum of three full years of coursework, exams, and tuition fees leading up to the renowned and feared Bar exam.
While many people are interested in working in the legal sector, they can be put off by the time and financial demands, the years of extremely rigorous training, and finally the highly competitive job market upon completion of their training. For those who feel this way, a career as a paralegal is an excellent option.
As a paralegal you will still be able to participate in the legal process but rather than being the front-runner, as a lawyer's assistant, you will be the supporting act. But don’t misunderstand, the role is crucial, since the job involves much more than straight-forward office and administrative tasks; it involves managing cases, analysing evidence, preparing arguments, drafting legal documents, interviewing witnesses, and researching legal codes to name just some of a paralegal’s responsibilities.
So although paralegals are not able to actually offer legal advice, they without doubt perform a critical role in and out of the courtroom.
Paralegals have a great range of options with regards to a career path, from working with entertainment lawyers in the film or music industries, to working with a law firm practicing criminal law, copyright law, or any other field of law. There are myriad options for a qualified paralegal. Drop us an email if you are interested in a Quality Paralegal.
