What does a Legal Assistant do?

Answer:
A legal assistant , also called a paralegal ,

is someone who acts as support staff for lawyers or in a legal office. Legal assistants cannot represent anyone in court, sign legal documents, or give legal advice. Legal assistants can draft some basic legal documents, which get reviewed and approved by lawyers. Legal assistants can also perform research for lawyers when it is needed for a case.


Paralegals can become certified through a two year or four year degree program or a paralegal certificate program. People with a bachelor's degree already can enter a short-term certification program to become a legal assistant. It is a good idea to find a program that is approved by the American Bar Association, and eventually become certified by the National Association of Legal Assistants.

What does an Paralegal do?

Answer:
A Paralegal assists a lawyer with researching,

analyzing, and preparing cases. Many paralegals also handle day to day office work, such as replicating case briefs. Because a paralegal is not a qualified lawyer, lawyers must carefully oversee their paralegal staffs, and paralegals may not always be able to work directly with the public in a legal capacity.


The responsibilities of a paralegal vary, depending on where he or she is employed. Sometimes this work requires research in the field, such as contacting witnesses and assisting with investigations. In other cases, a paralegal works solely in the office in a more secretarial capacity. By convention, a paralegal's hours are billed separately to clients, although the services of a paralegal are less expensive than the lawyer's time.

At a minimum, a paralegal usually attends a two year program for certification, although brief certificate programs are also offered. High-end paralegals may take a Master's degree in paralegal studies to make them more appealing candidates for employment.
