Legal assistant schools in Pennsylvania offer students the foundation needed to achieve employment as a legal assistant in the field of law. One-year certificates are available from many Pennsylvania schools and two-year associate’s degrees may also be obtained. Students learn to perform many of the same tasks as a licensed attorney. Similar duties include interfacing with clients, preparing legal documents, researching for legal cases and court proceedings, and completing forms required for court. The job outlook is promising for legal assistants, as more and more attorneys graduate from law school and open private practices. Legal assistant careers are expected to become one of the fastest growing industries over the next decade.
