Paralegals work under the supervision of lawyers in a range of tasks–researching the law; investigating; preparing for hearings, trials and real estate closings; interviewing clients and witnesses; and preparing legal documents and other legal correspondence. Paralegals cannot give legal advice or represent clients in court. If you are detail-oriented, organized, strong in communications and enjoy researching and analyzing facts, you might find a career as a paralegal very rewarding.
