Paralegals (sometimes referred to as Legal Assistants) perform legal work under the supervision of a lawyer. Paralegals provide critical and integral support to lawyers in private law firms, corporations, public institutions and the government, and have established themselves to be an indispensable part of the legal system. A paralegal performs all tasks under the supervision of a lawyer, except as permitted by law. A paralegal’s duties vary widely. You may find yourself conducting legal research, in an office meeting with executives of a corporation, or reviewing important documents for a document production.
