A job as a paralegal can be stressful, but also diverse and interesting. Over 70% of all paralegals work in law offices, where they perform many of the same functions as an attorney. They conduct research, draft documents, and interview clients, but are barred from practicing law or presenting cases in court. Paralegal schools in Minnesota give you the highly specialized educational framework you need to start your career in this field. Classes include various types of law, legal ethics, law office procedure, investigation techniques, interviewing strategies, communication, and legal documents. Some paralegals focus on a certain area of law, such as family law, immigration law, corporate law, or real estate.
