A paralegal is a professional who supports lawyers in providing legal services. Their responsibilities involve tasks like file management, document drafting and amending, legal research, and assisting the compliance team.
Paralegals can specialise in various legal domains, including, criminal law, personal injury, bankruptcy, business and corporate, intellectual property, immigration, family law, and real estate. In larger organisations, paralegals may focus on specific phases of a case rather than overseeing it from start to finish.
As paralegals need to navigate complex legal proceedings and documents on a daily basis, they must possess a combination of research skills, organisational skills, and communication skills. A number of areas of specialisation could also be needed from Paralegals, including:
…and more. The law can be a diverse entity, and the work of a Paralegal will need to reflect that diversity. Successful ones, it should be noted, tend to be learning and developing all the time, acquiring and honing the skills and experience required to take on more senior legal roles later in life.

One thing you can be absolutely sure of is the fact that your new Paralegal role is likely to be a busy one. Most of your days will be hectic, there will often be upcoming deadlines that need to be met and plenty of people in the practice will be looking to you to get everything done on time and in full.
