Legal studies schools in Nevada prepare students for careers as legal assistants and paralegals. Paralegals work as vital team members of a legal team working under the supervision of an attorney. Paralegals and legal assistants conduct legal research, legal report writing, discussing case strategy with attorneys, and making sure all relevant legal information has been considered. Approximately 70% of all paralegals work in private law firms. The rest are spread out between levels of government and corporations. Paralegal courses may include torts and contracts, criminal psychology, civil and criminal court procedures, wills and estates, and family law. Many programs also provide students with internships in approved law offices.
