Paralegal Training Course for Paralegals

A degree in paralegal studies prepares students to expertly perform a lot of the work that has traditionally been done by attorneys-at-law. A paralegal, also referred to as a legal assistant or lawyer’s assistant, works for a lawyer and helps perform research, prepares documents and motions which are then filed in court, manages the different cases, assembles evidence, talks to clients and witnesses, and is involved the litigation process. Paralegals might provide trial assistance or other dispute resolution procedures, draft real estate papers, or deal with matters relating to probate, contractual agreements, business, or law office inquiries. Paralegals, in short, do most of the work of lawyers except for appearing in court as a legal representative, advising clients, and making decisions.
