Paralegals, or legal assistants, are a vital part of today’s legal system. Paralegals perform many of the same tasks as lawyers, and are found in all types of organizations, but most are employed by law firms, corporate legal departments, and various government offices. In these organizations, they may work in all areas of the law, including litigation, personal injury, corporate law, criminal law, intellectual property, labor law, bankruptcy, immigration, family law, and real estate.
Paralegals may not provide legal services directly to the public, except as permitted by law.
