Follow your career passion

Paralegals work under the supervision of lawyers in a range of tasks—researching the law; investigating; preparing for hearings, trials, and real estate closings; interviewing clients and witnesses; and preparing legal documents and other legal correspondence. Paralegals cannot give legal advice or represent clients in court. If you are detail oriented, organized, strong in communications, and enjoy researching and analyzing facts, you might find a career as a paralegal very rewarding.
