A Paralegal's Job: Basic Tasks

Basic Tasks

The duties for which a paralegal can be called upon can be extremely extensive and varied, as the paralegals on a hole form a diverse marketplace. Paralegals are also found in many different organizations: from regular law firms, to government offices, to corporate legal departments, to real estate agencies, to non-profit groups, and so on.

Almost anyone entering the paralegal industry will be charged with a high degree of administrative work, at least at the beginning of one’s tenure with an organization (usually, greater responsibilities are given to paralegals as means of reward for a standard of service).

A strong understanding and capacity for clerical work is also necessary for a paralegal, since a great deal of work is based either on filing and organization. Typical legal actions involve tremendous amounts of paperwork, and paralegals can often be charged with their organization and accessibility for later periods.
