You need a formal training for the same as for the majority of the states. A paralegal career is a good option for those interested in grammar, legal terminology, typing, listening, analyzing, data, research, and writing of documents, and continuous learning. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median salary for paralegals and legal assistants was $46,680 a year in 2010. Legal assistants are employed in various organizations, such as law firms, Corporate legal departments, Government agencies. Organizations need specialized employees to help lawyers prepare for hearings, trials and corporate meetings. These employees perform a variety of tasks, from conducting legal research to drafting documents. From these invaluable employees are required to keep legal costs down, the outlook for growth is this field is good.
