Schools Offering Online Paralegal programs

People who need legal services may not just rely on lawyers; many people also knowingly or unknowingly may rely on the services of legal assistants, known as paralegals as well. Legal assistants provide assistance to lawyers by managing cases, performing legal research and analysis, preparing reports, and drafting documents. They may have considerable autonomy and may also perform some work that lawyers do such as preparing contracts or legal arguments. However, they cannot perform certain tasks that are reserved for lawyers like establishing a client-attorney relationship and setting legal fees. Paralegals mainly work for law offices, but they can also work for lawyers, businesses, corporations, and government agencies.

Sometimes employers may require formal paralegal studies and sometimes they do not. However, a paralegal degree or certificate is usually considered to be an entry-level qualification and is highly desirable. In fact, most paralegals may complete a paralegal studies program before they begin working in the field.
