To slash costs and lighten attorney workload, law offices everywhere are increasingly turning to paralegals. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of paralegals is expected to grow by 18 percent until 2020.*
While paralegals aren't legally able to practice law, they are indispensable in preparing for closings, hearings, trials, and corporate meetings; investigating cases, researching precedents, and obtaining affidavits; and preparing documents and presentations. Today’s paralegal faces the challenges of an increasingly complex and tech-based field, along with many more specializations to choose from.
