The role of a Paralegal is not to be confused with that of a Legal Secretary or Administrator. Sometimes referred to as a Legal Assistant, Paralegals require a detailed knowledge of laws, terminology, legal processes and procedures before they’re able to carry out the tasks required and employers will often look for relevant Paralegal qualifications when hiring.
There to support the Solicitor or Lawyer, Paralegals will carry out essential work such as legal research, production of legal documentation, documenting witness statements, drafting legal correspondence and more. All require a sound understanding of the relevant areas of the law and must be carried out with the utmost professionalism and discretion.
